Gaularfjellet.

Daytrip to Gaularmountain: Drive from Dragsvik along the Sværefjord and Vetlefjord and start the climb of the 9 hairpin-turns up till you reach the viewpoint at the top. Experience the peace and quiet along the route 13. From the viewpoint you continue along the Nystøl Waters till you reach the first parkinglot after the snowplow-station.

Sværaskaret

Now walk across the river to the Thorsnes mountainfarm and further to Sværaskaret (canyon).

You are now on the old trade-road between Sogn and Sunnfjord.

In 1706 mr. Hugleik Tungøen went by foot from Oldedalen to Copenhagen trying to persuade the king to help him and his fellow farm-neighbours while the famine ravaged. The poor farmers wanted to have the taxes redused, which was not in the interest of the landowners. After several trips to Copenhagen and Kristiania (the old name for Oslo) he finally got his demand through. On his last trip he was surprised by a snowstorm and froze to death in Sværaskaret. A bauta was rised in his honour in 1961.

 

 


Welcome to a walk on the waterfall path, where you will really feel the presence of the river, the power of the cascading falls in a contrasting landscape. The path are uneven, so you must use sturdy footwear. Your walk goes alternately on paths, wooden bridges and footbridges along the river and in diverse forested terrain on the edge of open countryside. There is plenty opportunity to fish and swim in quiet waterholes. Allow 3 hours of the trips.
1 Eldal - Kleivafossen - Gjermundstad ( 6km)

3 Longestølen - Storebotnen ( 6km)

Likholefossen.
Rv 13 over Gaularfjellet er utpeikt som nasjonal turistveg. Det er planlagt fleire rasteplassar ved utkikspunkt langs vegen. Liholefossen var det første. Gangbrua i aluminium og glas fører deg inn på Fossestien.
