Whether you are a regular visitor to this region or want to explore new paths, the northern part of the Setesdal valley has a lot to offer.
Enjoy the stunning natural scenery, the ancient historical sites and the rich cultural heritage which make Setesdal unique – also in a global perspective.
Centrally placed in Southern Norway, Hovden and Bykle – the northernmost villages in Setesdal – are excellent places to explore and practical starting points for round trips in this beautiful region. So why not let this part of Norway be your centre of attention this summer?
Local museums include the Hovden Museum of Iron Production, the outdoor museums Lislestog and Huldreheimen in Bykle, and the tiny, charming old church in Bykle.
