About Fondsbu - Vetti

From Eidsbugarden and Tyinholmen there are marked paths to Vetti through Fleskedalen. The trail goes between the mighty mountain massifs Falketind-Stølsnostind and Uranostind. After high mountains and a lot of rocks, it's good to get to farms with green farm meadows in Fleskedalen. On the way on down to Vettismorki and the self-service cabin Ingjerdbu, you have a rare and wonderful view westward to the U-shaped valleys in Hurrungane, which glaciers have carved out. Well down at Vettismorki, a must see is the viewpoint of Vettisfossen. It is cool to stand on the ramp above the canyon and see one of Norway's finest waterfalls in 276 meters free fall. From Vettismorki the path weaves down 350 meters in altitude to Vetti farm, which is a dream in itself. In the summer, they offer food and accommodation here. Further on, it is just 5km of easy walking on gravel road to Hjelle with bus connections to Årdal. This is a rare and wonderful trip.
