Leirvassbu - Olavsbu

Route info

Description

The first half is flat but stony near Øvre Høgvagltjørnene. You turn to the right before Langvatnet and continue the easy path.

When you reach Raudalsbandet it becomes more heavy. This is a hard hill you have to walk. Hopefully the snow is still left because it's not easy to walk in this stony ground. The finish down to Olavsbu will not give you any problem.

Hiking time

4 hours

Worth to know

After Høgvagltjørnene you'll find tent places.

From Leirvassbu you can climb the nice peak Kyrkja.
