A short stroll from the village of Å, its colourful cabins lining the coast, the route follows a soft grassy path through open woodland to reach a small stoney beach on the edge of Lake Agavetnet.

Leave your car in the village of Å and begin your hike from the car park of the Tørrfisk [Stock Fish] Museum.  A short time ascending gravel track leads you out of the village and into the lush countryside on a narrow (and at times boggy) path towards Lake Agvatnet.  Ahead you'll see the towering cliffs surrounding the lake and pass by a small cluster of wooden cabins on the lake shore before reaching a stoney beach where the route ends.  From here the trail becomes indistinct and boggy so we recommend enjoying the view before making your way back to the Tørrfisk Museum car park.  


If you're feeling bold and the wind isn't too cold you could take some swimming clothes with you for a paddle or quick dip in the lake - just make sure to remeber a towel and a very warm layer to get you warm and dry as the water will likely be freezing! User

The route passes over uneven terrain, including boggy sections, rocky path, and some areas where bedrock is exposed at the surface so care is needed and you should be a sure-footed walkers to cope with the mixed terrain.

0.00 km - With your back to the Tørrfisk Museum car park TURN RIGHT onto the road (take care of traffic) and follow it along to the bus stop on your left, then BEAR LEFT off the road to ascend on a wide gravel track towards houses.  

0.20 km - At the end of the gravel track with a white and red painted house ahead on the right BEAR RIGHT onto a narrow dirt path passing on the left-hand side of the house.  

0.30 km - On open grassy ground BEAR RIGHT to cross the wooden planks over the worst of the boggy ground here.  Shortly you'll begin to ascend gradually on a narrow path.  

0.50 km - Where the path splits with a large promentery ahead BEAR LEFT to follow the path which skirts the promentery on it's right-hand side.  Soon you'll descend and pass over a small land bridge between Lake Agvatnet on your left a much smaller lake on your right.
