From the youth in Lokkøya be head west towards the southern tip of Bøvatnet. Lake followed on the west side with a side trip up the valley between Bear Mountain and Vetten.

Here is a protected place with lovely views.

A detour to the not-so-pristine Hegge valley is also recommended, before continuing through Jokkumskogen and up Poll valley to Poll Hill. The return trip will be added over the marshes east of Bøvatnet.


On Poll hill located remains of a large farmstead. This Ødegården is a distinctive and valuable cultural heritage which is just waiting to be further explored. In the absence of reliable information can the each one of us make us thoughts about the business that has taken place here in ancient times.
