About Tonatten

Nice hike along the South side of Vatsfjorden, along water an through birch forest.
From the top you get panoramic view towards Reineskarvet and Lauvdalsbrea.

Follow the marked path from the tractor road, along the field and cross the bridge over the river.

Follow the same route back, or you can choose to make a roundtrip.  Then you have to follow the path to the left, right before the end of the lake. A part of this roundtrip goes along the mainroad back to where you started. A great familyhike!

How to get here:

State Highway 7 for about 2,5 km East of Ål Center. Exit to the left and follow district road Fv. 244 to Vats (about 17 km from the center of Ål).


Park at the eastern part of Vatsfjorden

Km/ masl:

4 km back and forth. 740 - 980 masl.
