Overview
More
From Varlivarden, 386 m, you have a panorama in all directions, overlooking mixed woodlands and deciduous forest contrasting with open areas. There are several starting points for the paths in the area, but if you arrive by car, the best parking is at ovre Hetland, at Myrland and at Maudland. The distance between ovre Hetland and Varlivarden is around 5 km. Many round trips are possible in the district. A round trip from Myrland takes about 1 1/2 hrs. whilst from ovre Hetland about 3 hours. The paths can be both rocky and marshy and therefore unsuitable for prams, pushchairs or wheel-chairs.

Vårlivarden is a 387m hill located a few kilometres east of Sandnes. This is a fantastic circular walk which takes 90 mins to 3 hours, depending on how long you stop to soak in the stunning views. Despite its' relatively modest height, it is the...More

Beautiful views from the top! It's a long walk, though, and you need good shoes and a windbreaker. A packed lunch is also useful.
