It is recommended that GPS is set to select the fastest route and any avoidance turned off in order for the route to be calculated as described.
Starts as usual from Straand Hotel and takes you a short distance down along Nisser. At Steane, turn left towards Grova and Drangedal.
Here you will have a small climb before tipping downwards. After passing the top, there is what you could call a very easy transport stage down towards Grova, Tørdal and Bostrak before ending up in Drangedal. This is a stretch of about 40 km and about 70 meters of altitude. In Drangedal, you may want to buy some food and drink for the trip over the moor to Lunde. The hike from Drangedal to Lunde is a great hike in slightly hilly terrain with a small climb in the last part up to the top before a good downhill run down to Strengen in Lunde.
When you come down to the road junction at Strengen, you will see Kjeldal locks about 200 meters to the right. Here you may be lucky enough to meet the canal boats Henrik Ibsen or Victoria as they pass through the lock. The bike ride continues to the left towards Fjågesund. The ride from Lunde and up towards Fjågesund and Vrådal is in the category of hilly terrain, but fun. And where you end the trip with the well-known Kviteseidkleivene towards Vrådal and Straand Hotel.
