Valle, the heart of Setesdal

Valle and Rysstad are good places to stop and enjoy the surroundings and the local culture.
There is plenty of space in the Valle area, with 1,300 inhabitants in 1,290 square kilometres. Between towering mountainsides, along the river Otra, people have settled for centuries. 

In the vast mountain areas on both sides of the valley you can enjoy peace and quiet and re-charge your batteries. Valle offers excellent starting points for mountain hikes, whether you prefer day trips or plan to spend several days hiking from cabin to cabin.
The steep rock walls in the area attract a growing number of climbers every year. With more than two hundred routes there are challenges for climbers regardless of previous experience.

Valle is the silversmithing capital of Norway. On your way through Setesdal, be sure to visit one of the silversmiths. Handmade jewellery from Setesdal is highly competetive with manufactured silver products both with respect to beauty and price.
The museum in Rysstad takes you on a journey through the culture, history and traditions of Setesdal.
