Leirvassbu - Kyrkja

Route info

Description

The route is the same as the one to Olavsbu in the beginning. When you reach Högvaglen turn left and up to the plateau between Kyrkja and Kyrkjeoksle. Probably you must walk in some snow here. It's easy to walk until the foot of the mountain.

Now it will be hard work in the steep hillside with block of stones. The last metres you have to climb with your arms. Up in the sky you have of course lovely views if the fog don't play with you. The route has path signs with the classic red t-mark in the beginning. But when you turn left up to Kyrkja the signs will disappear and you have to follow the path, but that's no problem.

Hiking time

4,5 hours (both ways)

Worth to know

Put up your tent outside Leirvassbu. It seems to be cold here in Leirvassbu so you must have warm clothes with you.

It's safe to hold your mothers arms. Very impressing to meet such a young girl here who haven't even started school.
