Guidance/ Info:

Haugesund Tourist Association owns Olalihytta (name of cottage). In the summer 2014 they built a new cottage and constructed a new pathway  that made Olalihytta accessible via bike, push chair/ pram and wheelchair (aquires a wheelchair that is adaptable to terrain). The terrain is easy to manage as the cottage is located only 100 meters higher than the parking area. The toughest incline is near Tosko (lake), but when you have passed the lake you are halfway there and the pathway changes from forest to open terrain. From thereon the path continues past Ongelsvatnet (lake) and the last distance is mostly downhill. If you want to spend that night at the cottage you can find more information at: www.ut.no

On your way back from the cottage to the parking there are several sites to see if you choose an alternative route. You can walk via Stauskar/ Steinsfjelet where you can se Siggjo, Stovegolvet, Melderskin, Folgefonna, Ingebørnuten and Hustveitsåtå in clear weather. From the Red Cross cottage you can also walk via Keisarholli and Skrukkane.


Trainers or hiking boots.
