The route starts at the information board in Saurdal at the top of the Saurdal road and is marked with red and white markings and stone cairns.  The route goes through mountain valleys, along water courses and to mountain tops.

First walk along route 5 towards Munkeggi (NB do not take the turn off to Hanevikelvi) until you come to a sign towards Hanevikstølen. From here take the old path into the Saurdal valley.

At the outlet of Målsnesvatnet lake the path continues over the bridge and towards Hanevikstølen, a summer farm which was in use until 1955.

From Hanevikstølen follow a path up over the mountain side and on towards the plateau between Storevarden and Bukkaberg. Here you can choose to take a detour up to Storevarden.

In Fagradalen you meet route 9 which takes you further to Spenane (1136m) and Raudmelen (972m) and from there on route 7 down to Balestrand.

Or you can of course choose to go back to Saurdal.

The whole watercourse in Saurdal with its lakes and rivers is well suited for rod fishing. In recent years Oddmundsvatn lake has had a good trout population. You can fish here with a rod without a license.

Advice:  In parts of Saurdal and below Raudmelen there are some wet moorland areas so wear waterproof footwear or take a change of footwear/socks.
