How to get there

Directions: Drive to Tuv and take off towards Grøndalen. Drive approx. 1 km until you arrive at the signpost Karisetberget/Kroken on the left side. Park by the green concrete building (power station).

Follow the path across the bridge by foot. 

Parking

Park by the power station, keep the road clear for tractors. 

Safety

Bring water and snacks. 

Tip

Enjoy blueberries, wild strawberries and lingonberries on your way up or down. 

Description

The path is easy and suitable for children. You start the hike by going over the river Grøndøla, on the other side of the river you can see grazing cows. At the end of the gravel road, you reach the trail. Follow the trail through the dense Norwegian forest and upon the mountain top. During the months of August- September, you may find plenty of berries and mushrooms. You could also meet some deer and grazing sheep. 

 

The trail is well marked, but look out for the alternative route to take up or down which follows a tractor road and will take you to the other side of the river.

 

At the top of the hike, you will be rewarded with views of the valleys Grøndalen, Mørkedalen and Tuv. If you look down you will spot Rjukandefossen, a great waterfall with lots of power. 

 

If you're interested in ecology, keep your eyes peeled for the scientific experimental area with 4 different types of conifers.

 

This is also a common trail for biking.
