Lekamøya fra Solsem

Lekamøya from Solsem

The legendary Lekamøya maiden (mountain), who escaped the Horseman’s arrow (Hestmannen Mountain), can be visited from both Haug and Solsem. You walk on ancient sea bottom and pre-historic beaches. The ocean and waves have shaped the landscape here, just after the Ice Age. Lekamøya stands like a monolith on the shoreline of that period at 106 metres above sea level, where she withstood the might forces of nature.

The hiking trail from Solsem goes through heathy meadow and across ancient sea bottom of pebbly rocks. You pass a stone quarry before the trail goes up along a narrow passage, and you will see the well-known profile of Lekamøya.
