The valley of Setesdal in southern Norway stretches from Evje in the south to Hovden in the north, a total of 147 kilometres.
The river Otra flows through every village in this picturesque valley.

The landscape varies from rich, green lowlands to wild and beautiful mountains. The road passes through many villages; new vistas await you around every bend. Choose peaceful days relaxing by your cabin, swim in the lake or raft the foaming rapids. Enjoy the wonderful hiking terrain and numerous other attractions.

In winter the two northernmost municipalities offer a wide range of activities. The Brokke Alpine Centre is situated in Valle while Hovden, in Bykle, is the largest and best-known winter destination in the valley.
