Church
“The richly decorated Hopperstad stave church in Vik would have been lost but for the intervention of cultural conservationists, who managed to save it just in the nick of time. This stave church was one of the many stave churches that would have been lost but for the intervention of cultural conservationists, who managed to save it just in the nick of time. Hopperstad was built in 1130 and is, together with Urnes, the oldest stave church in existence. During its long life, Hopperstad Stave Church has both suffered periods of neglect and experienced a wonderful revival in the 1880”

Church
“Hove Church is the oldest stone building in the Sogn region and probably one of the oldest in the country. It has been dated to the end of the 12th century. The church is named after Hove farm. Rich burial finds from Roman times show Hove to be an early chieftain s residence and historians think the church may have been built by a prominent landowner as a private chapel.”

“This is the only dairy that produces the traditional Norwegian "Galmalost", which translates as old cheese. Like many traditional Norwegian foods, Gamalost could be stored for long periods without refrigeration. The brownish-yellow cheese is firm, moist, coarse and often granular. Gamalost is rich in protein with low fat content, measuring 1% fat and 50% protein, and has a unique Umami (/uˈmɑːmi/), or savory taste.”

“Destination: Voss Season: June-November Difficulty: Medium Distance: 4.5 kilometers (out‑and‑back) Elevation Gain: 900 meters Duration: 4-5.5 hours Information and brochures are available from the Voss tourist information office. About Finnbunuten Follow the marked trail to Finnbunuten from Myrkdalen Mountain Resort in Myrkdalen, via Helgatun and Vetlebotn. When you reach the mountain farm Vetlebotn, continue along "Kari Traa ski lift" (the ski lift furtherst east). This is a family-friendly hike with a trail that is easy to negotiate. However, it is relatively long with the journey to the summit from Voss Fjellandsby/Helgatun measuring 900 meters, and 650 meters from Vetlebotn. The hike can be reduced somewhat by driving along the toll-road to Vetlebotn (700 meters above sea level) and starting the walk from there. On a clear day you can enjoy magnificent views of glaciers such as Hardangerjøkulen, Jostedalsbreen and Folgefonna. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of some reindeer, as the grazing ground in the area surrounding Finnbunuten is vital for the wild reindeer during the summer and autumn months.”

Her i frå er det ikkje langt til den sjølbetente turisthytta Selhamar. Frå Selhamar fylg ein skiltinga til Åsedalen. Ein kjem forbi Raudberget og langs fleire vatn, t.d. Rappavatnet, Geitdalsvatnet og til slutt Hallsetvatnet med stølen Halsetdalen att med. Derfrå går turen vidare til turisthytta Åsedalen (sjølvbetent) på 800 moh.

På veg ditt kan ein velje mellom stien som går mellom Killingdalseggi og Jørendalseggi, eller ruta gjennom Dyredalen langs Store Rappavatnet (ikkje merka, men tydeleg sti). Frå Rappen går stien tilbake til Bjergane. Ein treng fiskekort for å fiske i vatna. Du får det ved bomen i Skjelingen, på turisthyttene og ved Gamle Trevaren i Vik.. Ver forberedt på all slags ver og gå aldri åleine!”
