  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

Altitude difference: 300–370 metres


Estimated time: 1–2 hours


Walking map: Etne – Saudafjella 1:100 000


Starting point and parking: At Rullestad, at Skromme or where the postal road crosses the Dalelva river in the Rullestadjuvet gorge.


Description of walk: These fantastic potholes are located beside the postal road in Rullestad. You follow the marked path to Jettegrytenuten, where you can climb down to the potholes. Follow the same road back. The potholes are among the largest in Northern Europe and were formed during the last Ice Age. When the ice melted, ice, sand and rocks made the cylindrical-shaped holes in the rock. You will be amazed by how deep and big they are!
