Hike from Blåfjellenden to Hunnedalen

  • Blåfjellenden, Gjesdal
  • +47 38377800
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

This trip is dominated by a barren landscape and finding your bearings might be difficult and disorientating, despite this, the path is generally visible as it is a well walked path.

Starting Point:The hike begins at Blåfjellenden turisthytte.

Description: The trail starts in the middle of the cabins at Blåfjellenden. Follow the signposted path in the south-easterly direction towards Hunnedalen. After five minutes you begin a 200 meter ascent up to 820 meters (allow roughly 45 min). At the top of the ravine the path crosses the left hand side of the marsh, look for boards that are laid out along the bog. Pass between two tarns, stepping stones have been placed in the tarn so that it is easy to cross.
The landscape is very hilly. The tarns are more or less your means of finding your bearings. Continue in the south-easterly direction past a lake where another path crosses yours on your left hand. At the end of the lake follow the right side of the river that flows into an elongated tarn 150 meters ahead. Follow its short north-western side to the end and then turn south-east along the long side of the tarn. At roughly the halfway mark, the path veers towards a round tarn on your right, which you follow along its shore. At the end of these tarns, cross a sheep fence and then climb to the top of an outcrop from where you can see the cabins in Hunnedalen. You then follow the wide path of the old thoroughfare and farm road down to the main road in Hunnedalen (Høgaleitet).
