About Storekrækkja

Roundtrip on the Hardangervidda plateau. Starting by Fagerheim, the route follows a well marked trail to Krækkja tourist cabin. From there, follow marked trail towards Kjeldebu, but take left immediately after crossing the bridge. Follow the trail down, along the river and over the stony part, until you are down by the water, where you follow the trail back to Rv7 and Fagerheim. 

You're passing several cultural heritage sites on this route, but the one most easily seen is the hunting pit i the narrow passage between Krækkja and the bridge.
