About Bygdin - Torfinnsbu

Walk the road along the beach about 200 meters past Bygdisheim. Follow the signs to Tofinnsbu. The trail is mostly dry with some wet parts. The walk along the lake is an easy and pleasant trip. You pass several fishing huts on the way on to Hestevollen which are owned by farmers from Vang. The areas of uncultivated land belonging to farms in Vang reach far out.
