    Go to the mountains-Hestanippen-Vikedal

    by adema29 Updated Nov 21, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are in Rogaland, you shall use your opportunity to see everything from above.
    The steep mountains are not so difficult to be "climbed" as they seem, looking from the sea/fjord level.
    You'll always find a nice path going to the top and, sometime, the views on your way up could be more amazing than the view from the top.
    From my experience, every small or big city/village has at least one trail in the vicinity.
    The locals use to do hiking few times per week, as a routine.. As they said "ut på tur, aldri sur"- "out on tour, never sour".
    I will let you enjoy some on my pictures over the Vindafjord, taken from Hestanippen in Vikedal.
    To get an idea about the trail.. I have found a nice link for you all... enjoy it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XWpkYe8OpQk

    Road along the fjords

    by evaanna Updated Jul 4, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Driving up north along road 13 from Tau to Kinsarvik is pure pleasure. The scenery on your left is unspeakably beautiful, with fjords and mountains accompanying you all the way. If you manage to stop - there are not many places suitable for that - you can look down into the depths of the fjord and see tiny islands with little red houses like the one in my introductory picture and mountains on the other side reflected in the water. When you pass Skare, you will enter the Odda Valley with seven wonderful waterfalls right by the road. As this is no longer Rogaland, you will find pictures of some of them on my Hardangervidda page.

    The old bridge and the mill

    by evaanna Written Jul 2, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Going north along road 13 not too far from Tau you will see an interesting-looking place with an old cottage in a mountain river valley and an old bridge right across the small river Hauskeana. There are tables and benches there as it's a nice place for a picnic. The cottage with its turf-covered roof is an old grinding mill which in the past was used by the farms at Hauske to grind corn. You can still see water troughs for the horses, which would pull the loaded carts. The listed stone bridge dates back to 1905. To prevent the carts from slipping off it and into the river, it is lined with stones on both sides, just like the much more precarious Trollstigen (see my page on Andalsnes) , where stones serve as barriers, even for the cars and coaches. If you cross the bridge and follow the path to Kuednhushaugen, you can reach an ancient hill fort, but we had no time for that and soon were back on the road heading straight for the fjords.
