A great hiking area

Naustdal-Gjengedal has plenty of trails that are marked, signposted and adapted. However, there are also areas that are totally untouched and off the beaten track.

During the winter season, it is nice to go skiing on some of the many summit trips that are available.

Byrkjeneset next to Storevatnet Lake is an idyllic, beautiful and easily accessible hiking destination. It is a former wilderness camp that is now open to the general public.

Follow County Road 5730 from Aa and drive further on to støylsvegen and Gjengedalstøylen. You can park your car at Gjengedalstøylen where you can find a large parking lot and toilet facilities. Follow County Road 5730 from Å, and turn off onto setervegen to Gjengedalstøylen.

About the trip

An easy trip in flat terrain along Storevatnet Lake. We have laid wooden walkways along most of the trail so it is a lot easier to walk. Byrkjeneset is a lush and beautiful place. There is a fenced campsite where visitors can pitch their tents, and there is also an outdoor toilet. There is a beautiful beach with white stones.

Ryssdalshorn is a popular hiking destination from Gloppen. ‘A summit trip’ in the mountains with a great view. A steep climb, and many meters of elevation. However, this is still a manageable trip for most visitors. We have installed steel stairs in the steepest sections.
