Recommended advice

There are rest areas and viewing areas along the route. From Sjethaug, you may follow the T marked path to a large cairn at Navarhaug, 501m AMSL. From here, there are T marked paths to Vevik, Åsvodl, Kjeldestøl, Skåladalen/Ludnabekk, Nordlifjell and Myrdal. See Rosendal Turgruppe's route map and use your imagination to create interesting hikes.


A good gravel road of 3 km (toll road) with a consistent incline. The road separates several places; always keep right to follow the route to Sjethaug. From the nice rest area at Sjethaug, by the beutilful cottage, you may see Rosendal and there is a wide view of the neighboring towns, mountains, valleys, and the fjord landscape. An alternative is to park by the church and follow the signs to Sjethaug from there.
