The Cultural Heritage Trail starts in the centre
of Fyresdal by the museum in Øyskogen. You can choose
whether to do the entire trail (Folkestadbyen + the circuit via
Saukro and Bryggjeparken) or just one of the loops. The whole
trip takes just under one hour at a leisurely pace. No special
footwear or level of fitness is required – the tour is suitable for
both families with children and elderly people. Most of the trail
is suitable for wheelchair users.
