Take the old construction road as far as it goes. From here onwards there’s a good path up to the lake, Skarvabotsvatnet. On arriving at the lake look for the hiking sign on the left. There are a few parts of the route which are very steep, but the path is generally good. There’s a superb view in all directions from the top. From Jonstein you can also take the unmarked path down to Dåren. This is a great hike in good weather. At Dåren you meet the signs marking the routes for tours 10 and 13.
Bring food, drinking water and windproof clothing. We advise you to use hiking boots. If it’s been dry for a while you could use trainers/sneakers. We recommend that you bring a map of the area and a compass, or a GPS. Good cell phone signals covering most of the hike. Dogs must be kept (by law) on a leash at all times between April 1 and August 20. Open fire is prohibited in the hills and woods between April 15 and September 15. You are free to walk anywhere in the hills and mountains. Take care of the nature and show special consideration to all wildlife. Please do not litter. Ask the Tourist Information («Juklafjord») regarding angling/fishing and the purchase of fishing permits.
Take road 105 from Jondal towards Folgefonna. After 8.0 km turn right just before the bridge. (Close to the road junction is an information board showing details of tours 11 to 19.) This is a toll road for those continuing by car. The pay point is about 100 m in from the main road. You can pay by cash or card. After 2.0 km take a gravel road down to the left hand side. Continue 4.1 km until you arrive at the lake, Botsvatn. Park your car here and find the hiking signs showing the directions to both Jonstein and Dåren. Parking at own risk.
