For example, the fishing trip in Hovden can take place along the Otra River or from a boat on Lake Hartevatn. No matter what type of fishing you choose, there's a good chance you'll get one or more brown trout on the hook or in the net.

Hiking in Hovden – counting steps on Byklestigen

The Byklestigen (Bykle track) was originally the only and dangerous route over the mountain to the town of Bykle.
