Recommended advice
The beginning of the path may be soft and wet, please use appropriate footware.
Alternative access to the Postvegen Road can be from the parking lot at SparValen (Grocery Store). Walk through the Eplehagen subdivision to the Postvegen road towards Teigen/Husnes. Use your imagination to create interesting hikes, starting from Postvegen.

Overview
Along the highway for approx. 300 meters and then up the gravel road by the Solfeng subdivision to the Postvegen in Teigadalen. Approx. 100 meters after the top (towards Teigen/Husnes) there are signs where the path to Vikefjell separates from Postvegen. From here the route is marked with plastic markers hanging from the trees.

From Vikefjell there is a beautiful view in all directions, from the ocean to the mountains. There are few places as easily accessible to the spectacular view over parts of Sunnhordland and Valen and its neighboring villages.
