Hiking and storytelling

Arriving with kayak at Odnes we set up a camp and indulge ourselves with lunch, stretching our legs and share the serene surroundings with refreshing drinks. We continue hiking along the parts of the old Royal post route, which was used in winter time from the mid-1600s to transport the mail to Styvi when there was unsafe ice on the fjord. From there the farmers rowed the mail to Lærdalsøyri. In 1858 the steamboats took over the post route. Today the road is an easy walk of approx. 5 km one way from Styvi to Bleiklindi.
