This hiking tour is a round trip with great viewpoints along the way. From 1907 to today, this area was very central to the connection between east and west. Before the road was built between Flekkefjord and Lyngdalselva, people travelled here by boat across the bay to Feda. At the top of the hike is a visit book where visitors can write their names.
