Trips from Våhaug
600 m above Herand, you come to the end of a mountain road and a parking lot with the most amazing view. This place is Våhaug. From Våhaug, we can choose from many marked paths (and some unmarked) to experience the Hardanger mountains.
Easy: Grimenuten and/or Såta (2-3 hrs). We follow the marked path towards Vatnasetenuten, taking an unmarked path up to Grimenuten. We go back down and cross over a creek before venturing up towards Såta. We meet the marked path to Såta. Back using the marked path.
Medium: Tostøl – 10 km (4-5 hrs) (easy, but long walk)
The path is easy, with a few short inclines. Steppingstones have been laid out in the muddy parts. After about 1 hour, we reach the top of Saurdalen. We shortly arrive at the mountain cabins at Samdalsstølen with the lake Viddalsvatnet below. Tostøl is about half an hour further on.
Hard: Vatnasetenuten – 9 km round trip (4-5 hrs)
This is a round-trip, starting easy along the lakes. Steep up-climb to the top with spectacular views. Marked path.
