The trip we describe here is only one of many possibilities taking Fjærvoll as your point of departure. In the area east of Fjærvollfjellet, you will find a number of well marked trails and forest roads where you can start your trek into the mountains or remain on the lowlands between the villages of Straume – Fjærvoll – Steine.
From the car park at Fjærvoll kindergarten, you follow the path on the northern side of Fjærvollfjellet and on to the forest/tractor road leading to Soppåsen. After Soppåselva, you follow the ridge south of Trolldalsvatnet – up to the summit of Vetten (467 mas).
From Vetten, take the trail northward to the flat Spikarheia and on to Lynghaugtinden (504 mas). The return trip runs along Revelten and across the moor to Fjærvoll. At Nøkktjønna – a small detour north of the main route – the villagers of Fjærvoll have built a cabin for day outings.
However, it should be pointed out that most residents of Bø who hike to Vetten begin from the shooting range or the electrical power shed at Steine. But Straume can also be used as a point of departure to get to Vetten. The length of the trip varies according to the choice of route, from 3 to 7 km – depending on your starting point.
