Eastern Norway Vestfold og Telemark FYRESDAL

Mount Igletjønn

  • +47 35041455
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

A fascinating trip quite different from any other hiking destination in Fyresdal.10,3 km roundtrip / 4-5 hours.

Great views​​​​​​
Views and space are what this trip is all about. The top of Mount Igletjønnuten boasts views of almost the entire Fyresdal mountain range, and at the edge of the cliff facing Lake Fyresdalsvatn there are spectacular vistas across the lake and westwards towards the Setesdalsheiane mountains.

Historical sites
Along the route you will see the remains of abandoned highland farms from the Middle Ages, left fallow after the Plague. At Brautestøyl a bit higher up in the terrain is a set of overgrown house ruins.

Be aware
This is a physically challenging footpath which requires a good sense of balance. Parts of the trail are wet and slippery – even in good weather. We therefore advise against taking this trip when it rains! You will soon reach the tree line, so do not forget to bring some warm and wind-proof clothing, even in the summer. We also recommend bringing first aid equipment just to be on the safe side.

With its fascinating terrain, this is a great trip for families with a bit of hiking experience. We advise against carrying young children in baby carrier backpacks, as there is always a risk of falling.
