I’ve moved back to the town of Bø after living several years in Lunde just south. Even it’s not a far way apart it feel great to be back in Bø and have a view on some white mountains.
This winter i moved back to Bø just before the corona struck here in Europe. I traded out the old farm house in Lunde for a little apartment in Bø. The apartment is right next to the forest and from here you can actually run on marked trails all the way up Lifjell. but that’s a long run up & down!
For the just out of the door runs the forest areas around Folkestad are gold. My usual round trough folkestadåsene is about 12km, perfect for a run after work. It goes from the neighborhood to the “Hørteelva” river which is a great river to take a dip in. There is a great bathing spot just after the waterfall “Høgfoss” where another stream enters thee river.
