Eastern Norway Viken ÅL

Bleste Ål in Hallingal

  • Votndalsåsen, Ål
  • +47 32081060
  •  /  km From You

Well-marked hike in easy high mountain terrain with views over Hallingskarvet, the river Lya and a multitude of high mountain farms.

The hike starts from Svarthamar through the cottage area and thereafter towards the high point of Blesti (1077 masl). On some maps the name of the top is not Blesti, but Gaukelinatten.

From Blesti you have a panoramic view over the many summits in the area, down to river Lya where it's nice with a bath on hot summer days. From Blesti you continue in a gradual descent to Tormodset.

You can also start the hike at Tormodset, and if you wish to make a round trip walk one of the many high mountain roads in the area back to Svarthamar.
