Fjord Norway Rogaland TYSVÆR

Himakånå

Overview
Details

The spectacular hike «Himakånå» is one of the most known mountain hikes in the area. The peak is at 357 meters above sea level.

Locals have always known about the Himakånå rock formation, sometimes called ‘Little Trolltunga.’ Even though it’s a relatively modest 357 meters above sea level, all doubts about its impressiveness vanish when you reach it. Tucked away in a corner of Tysvær township, is a special landscape. Oak, beech and birch all flourish in favorable microclimate and rich soil of the mountain. The name, Himakånå, brings to mind a love left at home and taken for granted. The rock formation was always there, but for generations no one gave Himakånå a second thought. Fortunately, the story didn’t end there. 

Himakånå is much more modest than Trolltunga, which can be an advantage. The trek is faster, more accessible, and family friendly. The hike to the top takes about 1 hour, and here you will be rewarded with panoramic views of Lysevatnet lake, Nedstrandsfjord and the farms surrounded by lush forests.
