On this bicycle trip from Sæterstad to Bakketun, you will be cycling on the paved road "Varntreskvegen" (Fv. 292) alongside Røssvatnet. There are plenty of picturesque places along this road - and you can see a beautiful view towards Krutfjellet in the south and Okstindan in the north. 

After 5 km, you arrive in the small village Varntresk, where you can find a newly renovated chapel, the artscape "Nær fortid - Røssvatnet" and the museum "Kolbeintunet". It is further recommended to take a trip to see some of the cultural heritage in Nordalsbukta, a viewpoint in Hjartfjellneset and a beautiful spot to stop in Meisvika. You will pass several places where you can find more information about the area.

Recommended detours: Farmvassvegen from Varntresk to Sweeden, or the forest path from Bakketun towards the powerful Hjartfjelltind.
