Trip Summary

Starting from Betanien, we first connected to Nordnæsdalsveien (via Jonstadveien), before we turned right, shortly after passing the boom, then following a nice path that lead us up to Olsokfjellet (from the south). From Olsokfjellet, we connected to Damsgårdsfjellet, and from there we continued in a westerly direction, descending (steep!) to Skaret. Up on the other side, we crossed Holefjellet and continued towards Nygårdsnipa. Changing more and more into a southerly direction, we ascended Gravdalsfjellet (from the north). Continuing our round, we passed by Viggohytten -- or what remains now, after the hut burned down, recently! From there, mostly heading eastwards, we quickly connected back to Vestlund and to Betanien. All in all, a nice easy hike in beautiful summer weather! :-)
