About Mountain farms at Venabygdsfjellet

Easy walking in open terrain, and a little birch forest

Getting there

The tour starts at the boom for Flaksjølivegen, below the parking lot at the Lunde shop.

Trail description

You then follow the Flaksjølivegen road inwards until you meet a dirt road on the left, which is marked Svartfjellvegen. Follow this mountain road up to Svartfjellsæter. Just before the junction, follow the path on the right-hand side west towards Holtesæter. Take a good break and enjoy the view at Svartfjellsæter. The path you should follow gradually goes down and is periodically a little rocky. When you begin a slight climb again, you reach a point where the path divides. Then take the path on the left direction. and follow the ridge towards Holtesæter. On this ridge you will also find a table with a seating bench so you can enjoy the view. Then continue on the trail until you reach a small water, and follow the dirt road further down to Holtesætra. At Holtesætra you will find a blackboard with historical description of Holtesætra. Then follow signs and return to Lundes.
