In 1992 a major fire burned down a big area around Hopsfjellet mountain, north of Førde. In 1998 this area was protected by the Nature Conservation Act, to make it possible to study how flor and fauna and animal life can rebuild after a big fire in the forest. The walk up to the top (333 metres above sea level) takes aproximately 1 hour. On the top it is an amazing view!
