This hike has been done on 20th June 2019, based on the directions of Outt.
Finally I have got some time to write down our Norway experience. After a first night in Bergen, we drove south towards Stavanger. The weather wasn’t really great but looking up at the forecast we became optimistic and decided to go for a first short hike to warm up our legs.
We decided therefore to hike the Himakana, also known as the Little Trolltunga. It is a short hike, about 2 hours up and down, and just a 30 minutes deviation from the main road. We parked our car in front of the Nerstrand church in Hindaråvåg (100 NOK) and started our hike.
The trail goes up immediately from the road and passes aside some farms, giving the opportunity to see some cows and sheep, which will be our companions in the whole trip.
After a short plateaux, the trail goes up again and after about one hour we reached the Himakana cliff. On the way, we found also a plaque telling the legend of Himakana, which apparently was a troll woman that turned into rocks for some reason.
From the top we had amazing view of the underneath fjord and got time to take some scary pictures from the cliffs around.
Done with the photographic session, we came down from the same trail and continued our trip to Stavanger, ready for the following hiking days!
