Trail description

Partial marked path in demanding terrain. Magnificent view from Svaraberg.

From the parking follow the signe towards Reinsbotnan for about 3,5 kilometres. A few signes will tell you that you are on the right path.

Exit right at the sign to Svaraberg and when you start the climb up to Svaraberg there will only be some cairn to let you know the way.

If you want to make this hike a roundtrip go towards North on Svaraberg. Here it is easier to find a good path down to Versjøen. When you are on the path along Versjøen you follow this one until you have past Kyrkjetjerni. Exit to the right and follow this path until it meets with the path you started the hike on.

If you miss this exit just continue to Vealie. Exit to the right in the first crossing and follow the road back to the parking. This trip is about 1,5 kilometres longer then if you exit after Kyrkjetjerni.



9 kilometres back and forth. 1050 - 1456 masl
