Steep path, with views towards Rosset and Elstad on the way. From the top you get a lovely view of Harran and Heimdalshaugen/Aajmehtaelie (1158 masl). The hike is 2,5 km one way, with an elevation gain of 275 meters. Vattatuva is named after the wooden beacon (used for signal fire) on it, the northernmost beacon in Namdalen. It was put into operation for the last time around 1800 and was on standby with a full crew from summer 1808 to the spring of 1809.
