Hike to Stovegolvet

  • +47 53496950
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

Hike to Stovegolvet - the name Stovegolvet (Livingroom floor) reflects the fairly flat area on the top, compared to the rolling rocky landscape all around.

Location: Stord mountain, Lundsseter
Map: Stord - Fitjar 1:50.000.
Start and end point: Lundsseter powerstation.
Parking: Public parking next to the power station. From E39, follow the signs to Lundsseter from Ådlandsvatnet lake or from the junction to Rommetveit.
Marking: Information board at the starting point, directional arrows. Marked and graded after the new national standard. Signs in all crosspaths. Otherwise T - markings and cairns.
Grading: Red. Challenging hike.
Difference in altitude: 190 – 703 m. above sea level
Estimated time: 3 - 4 hours (7,5 km)
Good advice: Some steep parts. Use proper shoes
Tour description: Roundtrip starting at the Lundsseter hydroelectric power station. Some steep climbs demand fitting shoes. You follow marked path up Tyseskaret to Eldhushedda. From here there is a good view of the southern part of the Sunnhordland basin, towards Halsnøy, Borgundøy and Valevåg. On top of the pass turn right at the path crossing, to a steep climb towards Stovegolvet. Further up is an even steeper part where there is a chain- support to ease the climb. On the way up it is important to pause, both to recover your breath and admire the view of the archipelago of Sunnhordland. (It is said that on a sunny day it is possible to view the boathouses of Britain. If you bring your binoculars, it is possible to find out the truth of the statement). The name Stovegolvet (Livingroom floor) reflects the fairly flat area on the top, compared to the rolling rocky landscape all around. You may still find bits and pieces of the radio mast placed here earlier. It was taken down when the teletower at Kattnakken was built. At the time when the Norwegian Telephone Company built the triangular cabin on the top, there was even a cableway from the power station to Stovegolvet.

From Stovegolvet, you follow the mountain rim towards Kvelve, with a view to Kattnakken and the teletower. The path is marked, well used and clearly visible. It is an easy walk past the wide hollow of Kvelve, where you turn right down Fossabrekko towards Heio. Approximately midway down Fossabrekko, there is a path sloping to the right, direction Kyviksæter. From here there is a tractor road down to the parking lot at Lundsseter. You may also go down to Heio and follow the asphalt road to Kyviksæter.
