About Kultursti til Rysndalen

The culture trail begins at the mouth of Vangsmjøsa and continues all the way up to the summer farms in the mountain. You pass by old crofts and hayfields that today are enriched with flower species such as Lady’s-hair and orchids. Further on, you arrive at the Sørre Hemsing farm.
The farm contains 8 buildings from the 17th to the 19th century that have recently been restored. Right above the farm, by the stream, you will find an old restored water mill. Continuing upwards, you follow the old road up into the mountain, which is how they brought their animals to the summer farms from the old days. Along the route, there are several information boards.

Sørre Hemsing can provide accommodation and meals upon request.
