Aungrenda, july 2009

"Aungrenda Rundt" is a well known organized hiking trip that takes place each year during Velfjord Days in late July. Since there is a marked trail it is also possible to go this route any time. In addition to a varied and magnificent scenery, Aungrenda Rundt also has a strong historical profile.

The hiking trip starts at Folkets Hus Community Center at Sausvatn app. 10 km. from Hommelstø. The marked trail runs along many old settlements, and one gets a glimpse of the everyday life and struggles in the outskirts of Norway.
