Guided hike in family-friendly high mountain terrain
Join us on a guided family-friendly hike at Vikafjellet Mountain Plateau! The area offers green and lush landscapes as well as spartan mountain terrain, and fantastic walking opportunities for families.
We'll start by driving 10-15 minutes from Myrkdalen Hotel to Sendedalen valley. The drive itself is stunning, through Kvassdalen - a luxuriant u-shaped valley which was formed by the glaciers thousands of years ago. From Kvassdalen valley the road winds up next to the 90 meter tall and spectacular waterfall Sendefossen. At Vikafjellet Mountain Plateau, we'll start the hike next to a little tarn called Vetlavatnet at 900 metres above sea level.
From here we'll walk on a well established track in hilly terrain - perfect for children! After approximately 2 km, we will have a long lunch break, next to the mountain tarn Lars-Olavatnet. Here the guide will organize different nature activities for the children and make hot drinks for everyone. On hot and sunny days the tarn offers a refreshing swim - bring your swimming togs if you dare to take a dip! We will return the same way.

Do you want a more demanding hike?
