Accomodation: Reiselivsbasen



The hike is in variable and rugged terrain and starts with a 600 m climb: steep, narrow path in birch wood, grassy and heathery mountain sides, scree and a string to pass a short, steep stretch. Use trekking shoes and adequate clothing for a day in the mountains. Bring your own food for the day.
The hike to the first performance position is normalt a little more than 2 hours. The event is free – all you have to do is appear at Barstadsetra at the published time (see news or Ny Musikk ). The first concert is about three hours after published start time. We'll be back by the cars after some eight hours.
