Overview

From the church, follow the gravel road 1,5 km to a storage place for timber.  From there, follow the signs and markings. First on the forest road, then on the path through the forest up to the barren mountains. And thereafter on rocky ground and rocks. The trip to Gygrastol gives a very special feeling of being close to the sea, fjords, valleys, mountains and the glacier, in the borderland between Sunnhordland and Hardanger.

Recommended advice

Bring extra water / drinks.
