About Tyinhølmin - Hjelle

From Tyinholmen, walk towards Koldedalen, but take a left and stay on the same level on the south side of Breikvamsnosi into Hjelledalen which you follow from its humble beginnings in ragged landscape into lush mountain farm landscape and further steep down along the Hjellefossen waterfall to Hjelle (50m) into the gorgeous Utladalen valley. Once here in Hjelle, you should head into Vetti and Vettisfossen the next day.
