Hjelmen lies near the center of Hjelmeland in Ryfylke. Easy walk from Hjelmelandsvågen and onto the Hjelmen.
The outcrop that has given the town its name as it supposedly resembles a helmet. The walk is suitable for young children.
The highest point of Hjelmen is 206 meters above sea level with a nice view across the Jøsenfjord to Ombo, Nesvik and Randøy. You'll also see the sculpture "Northern Winds" made in lokal stone of Santos Carvalho Escultor, Portugal, at the top.
