My best campsite in Norway was at Uttakleiv beach. $20. The only time I paid for camping in a nation where you can camp almost everywhere free.
Early next morning I had to decide whether to climb Veggen or the more popular Mannen.
For no particular reason, I decided on Veggan (“the wall”) which is a bit higher at 489m. Starting early morning, I had the summit to myself.
Like many day hikes in Norway, it’s an unrelenting climb with one good photo stop at lake Vasskarvatnet.
On departing Uttakleiv, I enjoyed the walk along the coast to Haukland beach rather than try to walk through the automobile tunnel.
