Great scenery, woodland and mountains immediately behind the cabins. You can pick fungi such as chanterelles and porcini as well as blueberries, wild blackberries and raspberries. Walk around Børkjenes headland, approx. 45 minutes, or take a walk through the woods and up to the top of Børkjenes hill, 634 metres. Or why not do the walk to Skånevik (approx. 15 km) on the old post road to Etne? A great walk that takes 2-3 hours.View Photo Gallery
Etnefjellene mountains are great for hill walking and can be warmly recommended. There are marked paths that run between Haugesund Mountain Hiking Association’s cabins in the area, and you can fish in the trout lakes, salmon rivers and in the fjord in the Etne area.
For many guests, fjord fishing is a favourite pastime - sitting out on the fjord in an open boat just waiting for the big fish to bite. Cod, pollock, saithe, flounders, wolf fish, mackerel and haddock are among the fish you can catch in the fjord.
If the weather gets hot in summer and you feel like cooling down, just take a swim in the fjord. Just past the wharf, there is a little beach where you can lie and sunbathe while the children play at the water's edge, hunting for small crabs, prawns and shells.
Maybe you are a blues fan and would like to visit Skånevik Blues Festival, or the annual Etne Fair, which features well-know performers, competitions and lots of stalls where you can buy just about anything? Vikedal has a Roots Festival, and there is a Meat Festival in Ølen. The town of Haugesund has a harbour festival, the Sildajazz jazz festival and the Amanda Film Festival. There are lots of festivals all summer and plenty to do.
