Southern Norway Agder FLEKKEFJORD

Hiking to the potholes at the Brufjell caves

  • Roligheten, Flekkefjord

  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

The horizontal potholes at Brufjell were created during the Ice Age some 20.000 years ago when the sea level was higher. The potholes lie horizontally 20 meters above sea level and are of various sizes and some are so big that people can climb inside them.

The Brufjell mountains are located at Åna-Sira, just outside Flekkefjord in Southern Norway. The potholes and caves at Brufjell are a popular hiking destination in Southern Norway.

These potholes were created during the Ice Age over 20,000 years ago. The high and rough seas continually crashed against the rock cliffs creating the potholes in mountains which used to be higher than Mt. Everest.

Stunning views
Once at the top of the cliffs, you can experience panoramic views over the entire coastline all the way to the Lista lighthouse. This is a perfect opportunity for pictures, so make sure you have a good camera. At the top of Brufjell you will see a mail box. Feel free to write your name and nationality.

There is a relatively steep ascend before arriving at Brufjell. Follow the sign to the potholes  and walk down the mountain. It gets very steep and people who are afraid of hights might find it a bit scary. Some safe handles have been put up to facilitate the short climbing.

When you arrive at the potholes, you can sit inside them in a type of cave and enjoy the views. This is the point where many people take pictures of friends standing at the entrance to these caves.

As is the case with any hiking adventure, please inform someone where you are going and what time you will be back. Take a camera, some food and at least one litre of water. The steep areas of the hike can be a little difficult so children aged 10 and above are recommended for the journey.

Closed at Winter
All use of the public trails to the Brufjell pot holes is at your own risk during the winter closure. Flekkefjord municipality has closed the toilet for the winter season between 01.11.2019 – 01.03.2020 at Brufjell.

How to get there
Drive road 44 (the North Sea road) to Åna- Sira. Driving down the mountain towards Åna-Sira, notice the sign "Roligheten" on the left side. Drive down this small road towards the small community.

Park in the parking lot at the school and from there, walk approximately 2 kilometres along the local road towards to the trail, enjoying the little white houses dotted alongside the road and the fjord that runs parallel to the road. At the turnaround the paths toward Brufjell Mountain start.

The whole journey is marked with signs and painted stones to ensure that you go in the right direction. At a normal pace, it will take about one hour and a half to reach the potholes from the start of the hiking trail. Along the way, you will pass Sandviga beach. Its white pebbles and clear water are a welcome relief if you are hiking during summer.

For a more detailed description, and a map, please contact the tourist information in Flekkefjord.
