About Bleste - 2017 10 turfavorittar

Be aware - when you are crossing the marshy area with a small pond on your right hand side ( comming from the Fekjastølan side ) it is wasp under some of the planks !!!.

We recommend you to walk on the left hand side of the planks.

Well-marked path in easy high mountain terrain with views towards Hallingskarvet, the river Lya and a multitude of high mountain farms. From Svarthamar the hike goes through a small cottage area and goes on towards the high point of Blesti. Go back the same way or continue in a gradual descent to Tormodset. Now you can either go back the same way to Svarthamar or you can walk one of the farm roads.
The trip from Tormodset to Blesti will be a little steep in the beginning and up to the top of Blesti.
