Overview
Details

From Valldal you drive the road to Tafjord through the 1 km long tunnel and continue to Fjørå. At the crossroad in Fjørå follow the signpost to Selboskar. The road climbs steep 4km up hill before it flattens out at Hauge, barely 400 m.a.s.l. Here you will find signposted parking area on the right side.

From the parking lot starts the walking tour. Follow the road for another 400 meters and turn left and follow the tractor road that goes right to Nysetra, an alpine pasture (approx. 750 meters), you see it in sky rim. Along the way, and from the pasture, there is a magnificent view back towards the fjords (the Tafjord and the Norddalsfjord).

From the pasture you keep on along a signposted and marked path towards Mefjellet. The trail goes straight up from the farm and follow the marked ridge all the way to the top cairn on Mefjellet (1100 m.a.s.l) Here you are rewarded with great views of the valley Valldalen and the surrounding mountains.

The trip can also be accessed by mountain bike.

If you do not want to go the same route all the way back, you  can continue over Mefjellet and follow the ridge down on the other side. There you will find a path that will lead you back to the pasture (Nysetra).
On the way down along the tractor road you may also follow the path to Ruggå back to the parking lot. The path is signposted at the first bend after the pasture. The time spending is about the same.

The tour is also a great skiing in winter.

For those who are looking for more extreme activities, there is an annual uphill race to the top of Mefjellet ("Mefjellet Up"), starting by the fjord in Fjørå.
