Location: Røldal

Map:  Statens Kartverk ”Røldal”   1 : 50 000

Category: Red

 Height difference: 502m (Start: 902 m.a.s.l. Top: 1422 m.a.s.l.)

 Length: 4,8 km

 Time: 4-6h

Choose a day with nice weather for the hike to take advantage of the great views on the tops. The terrain is steep so do not forget good shoes, be aware of slippery parts on rainy days.

A hike with a steep slope that is demanding both up and down, a lot of walking on stones and rocky surfaces, but no "climbing". Well on top however, you are rewarded with gorgeous views in all directions. On clear days you can see all the way to Stavanger and out to the ocean. Bring extra clothes, the peak-mountains can be cold.  
The tour starts by the RV520 (National Tourist Routes Ryfylke, closed in the winter from November to June).  Hilly for the first 300m, follow the markers along the lake until you reach the "end". From here follow a natural "scores" in the mountains that runs in north-easterly direction. Well up in the mountains you arrive a little east of Røldalssåta and must go west to reach the top. Såta has two peaks, but it is the one furthers west that is the tallest and the goal for the trip.
