Climbing needs good physics and courage. It’s not suitable for everyone even though you have trained in your home country. There’s no sign in the starting point so we walked in the wrong direction for one hour.

From Haukland beach, it's almost a thousand of meters to climb, quite steep. View from the top is really amazing. Pointed peaks, beaches, green fields, sea : what a combination!

Hiking down is quite hard for your knees. Would not recomend this hike if you have knee problems, but there is plenty of other options starting from Haukland beach.
