Tour description

This is a family-friendly hike that takes you through the forests and mountains of Skeikampen. The trail is mostly easy, with some moderate sections.

The hike starts at Høyfjellstunet and follows the sign-posted cycling and hiking route S3 Knutsholoa past Paradis and left onto Veslesetervegen towards Austlid Fjellstue.

From Veslesetervegen, turn left at the junction at Lake Veslesetervannet. Follow "The road around the lake" for a few hundred meters and turn off on the trail at the intersection in the middle of the hill. At the top of the hill, follow the mountain road for about 200 meters before turning left onto the trail and left onto the road after about 200 meters. The main trail to Kyrakampen starts at the end of the road.

Follow this trail past Ulvtjønnet and all the way to the top. Just below the summit on the north side you will find the old silver mine Knutsholoa. You can go inside the mine, but be sure to bring a lantern. The mine is quite deep and dark, and there is a deep hole filled with water at the bottom.

From the top, the trail descends steeply northeast past two small ponds before dropping off the edge of Klevaberga. Once down the road, turn left onto Veslesetervegen and right onto the path towards Paradis right after the bridge.

Follow this path past idyllic Paradis and further up back to Høyfjellstunet.

The route is signposted S3 Knutsholoa.

We hope you enjoy your hike!
