Last June we spent a weekend at Seljestad in Norway. We rented an old cabin that my parents also rented when I was young.
Seljestad is a mountain hamlet located in Odda municipal at approximately 600 meters a.s.l.
Seljestad has a magnificent hiking-area. The nature in these mountains is untouched and stunningly beautiful.
We arrived a Friday afternoon and headed out for our first hike. We started along the Løynings lake and continued to the Nyastøls lake. This was an easy hike for a couple of hours in beautiful weather.
Next day we drove down to Rullestad in Etne Municipality, and hiked to the Potholes. We started at the old postal road in Rullestad and followed the marked path to Jettegrytenuten, where we climbed down to the potholes. The potholes are among the largest in Northern Europe and are several meters in diameter. They were formed during the last Ice Age when the ice melted, ice, sand and rocks made the cylindrical-shaped holes in the rock.
Next day we went for a short hike before we headed back home.
