A lot of people are unaware that the striking rock formations you see there are made of anorthosite which is the same rock that you find on the surface of the moon. So, at Brufjell you can literally walk on the moon!

Walking from Roligheten to Brufjell you will get an amazing panoramic view of the open ocean. The potholes at Brufjell were created due to erosion. That is, the ocean and pebbles created these magnificent stone formations after the last Ice Age. This kind of pothole is a very rare natural phenomenon.

Route description

The outer path, which has a red trail mark, has a section that is very steep. Walking along this trail, you must be very careful. From Brufjell you can get into the potholes at Brufjell (Brufjellhålene). The path down to the potholes is very steep and you need some strength in your arms and legs, to master this trail. Steel hoops have been installed to climb on the steepest section (a short via Ferrata without rope securing). We recommend that you only do the steep path when the mountain is dry.

How to get there

At the regional road, FV44, near Åna-Sira, west of Flekkefjord, take the exit towards Roligheten. Park in the parking lot at Roligheten. Take the road further out to the turning point where the path to Brufjell starts.
