Overview
Details

Reinarknuten towers 787 metres above sea level on the south side of the lower Tysdalsvatnet lake in Ryfylke. From the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke (Rv 13) alongside Tysdalsvatnet lake you have a great view of this majestic mountain.

To reach this popular hiking destination, you take the road up to the cabin area four km southwest of Reinaknuten, where you can see tofts or foundation walls from mountain farms dating back to the Middle Ages. From the car-park a waymarked path leads to the top. The first kilometre, up to Strandabrynene, starts in a sparse pine forest and ends in heather moorland. Then comes a rather steeper pull up the southwest side of Krossen, before the path flattens out for a kilometre or so. You are now crossing the boundary between Strand and Hjelmeland Municipalities. The final pull up to Reinaknuten takes you from 600 to 748 m and is the toughest part of the walk. On clear days, Reinaknuten commands a wonderful view over large parts of Rogaland, from the furthest western islands to the highest peaks in the depths of Ryfylke.

The route to Reinaknuten is the first stage of an ancient track and drove-way to Årdal and the Årdalsheiane moorlands. You can continue from Reinaknuten to the Målandsdalen valley.
Before ascending to Reinaknuten you can look down the Skomakarjuvet gorge to Tysdalsvatnet, an exciting photo opportunity.
