Bicyle route - Skei - Astruptunet - Skei

Overview

This trip takes you from Skei to Astruptunet and back. You cycle on a quiet road, with hardly any traffic, alongside the pretty Jølstravatnet lake. The route is flat and pleasant, with many pretty places where you can stop to take a picture. A stop in Astruptunet before turning back, gives an insight into the life and art of Nikolai Astrup (1880 – 1928).

This trip takes you from Skei to Astruptunet and back. You cycle on a quiet road, with hardly any traffic, alongside the pretty Jølstravatnet lake. The route is flat and pleasant, with many pretty places where you can stop to take a picture. A stop in Astruptunet before turning back, gives an insight into the life and art of Nikolai Astrup (1880 – 1928).

This is a memorable and beautiful cycling trip alongside the Jølstravatnet lake, with a visit to Astruptunet. The trip starts in the centre of
Skei, and when you get to the pass between the Jølstravatnet lake and the Kjøsnesfjord, we recommend a stop. Here you will see the tallest
mountains of Jølster, and at the head of the fjord, the Jostedalsbreen glacier appearing between the mountains. Several of Nikolai Astrup’s works were painted here – among others, heportrayed Grovanipa, which stands out in the landscape.

You continue cycling on the southern side of the Jølstravatnet lake on a quiet road. The lake is known for being one of Europe’s best trout fishing waters, and you will probably notice keen anglers along the water’s edge.

Astruptunet is idyllically located in the hills above the Jølstravatnet lake. Here stands the home of the painter, drawer, and graphic artist Nikolai
Astrup (1880 – 1928), one of Norway’s most famous national artists. The hillside farm cluster has a unique atmosphere, and the museum offers
guided tours of the artist’s home.

On the way back, you get to experience the route from a new perspective, although just as beautiful. In sight are the famous mountains Orkja,
Olahansen, and Grovanipa, blending harmoniously in with the Jølstravatnet lake.
