On an easy mountain path you pass the valley, Hestadalen and turn westward over Svartevassleite. Look for the hiking sign at the small lake, Svartevasstjørna. A good track skirts around the north side of the large lake, Svartevatnet and brings you to the mountain cabins at Osadal. Following the track you will find the hiking sign here. After crossing the bridge the rest of the hike continues on the south side of the watercourse, towards Gamle Osadal, around Osadalsvatnet and along Langevatnet. In order to get to the next lake you leave Langevatnet at the hiking sign for Klippe. The path goes up to Klippe and then sharply down to Grytingsvatnet and then along the lake until you meet a path junction and a hiking sign showing routes to Flatabøgryting and Breidsete. You can change over to tour 17. (The mountain cabins at Flatabøgryting can be seen on the opposite side of the lake.) Follow the sign marking the route to Breidsete. The path goes steeply down to the small lakes, Jondalstjørnane, after which it takes you (steep again) down beside the waterfall. The last part of the hike follows the river and is a bit marshy in places until it arrives at the mountain cabins at Breidsete, where you can find an information board giving details of the hikes in the area. There are enjoyable fishing possibilities in the many lakes you pass on this hike.

Tips from locals

Bring food, drinking water and windproof clothing. We advise you to use hiking boots. We recommend that you bring a map of the area and a compass, or a GPS. Cell phone signals are NOT GOOD during this 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. Fishing licence for these lakes can be bought at the Coop shop.


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. Hestadalen is about 6 km further up the road. Look for the big parking spot on the right side of the road, where you will also find the hiking sign marking the tour to Breidsete. Parking at own risk.
