Start

This hike starts at the entrance to Heio / the road barrier

Follow the road past the road barrier for a bit, before you turn left and walk up the Sherpa stairs and Fossabrekko. Along the way you will have great views of Sunnhordland, like Huglo, Tysnes, the Kvinnherad mountains, Halsnøy and Borgundøy. You can also spot the Folgefonna glacier from here. There are about 500 steps before you reach the top of Fossabrekko. There is an area with benches along the way where you can have a break.

You can combine this hike with a hike to Stovegolvet mountain if you are interested.
