About Gravdalsfjellet 

Gravdalsfjellet is located in Gravdal, an area within Laksevåg, in the vicinity of Olsokfjellet and Damsgårdsfjellet. Many people like to hike to Viggohytten (Viggo Cabin), which is located near the summit of Gravdalsfjellet (at around 350 m) and has been rebuilt after burning down in 2014. From the summit of Gravdalfjellet, if the weather is clear, one can enjoy an uninterrupted 360 degree view of the surroundings.
