The tour starts at Setran Adventure Farm, and we mostly follow the old trail to Galtneset. At Storhaugen we get to experience a panoramic view of the Opløfjord and the big sea Folla, before descending to giant caves. Here we can «hunt for» giant pots of all sizes and shapes. Common to all is that they are reasonably round in shape, but depth and size in diameter vary widely.

We take an orientation on the formation of giant pots and why they are right here. We continue down to the fjord and Galtnesvika, which is a fantastic pebble beach. This beach type also has its natural explanation.

We now move through an open cultural landscape that is managed by sheep to the east side of Galtneset, where the remains of the old trading site are located. Here we take a break and cook coffee on a black kettle. We enjoy our own packed lunch. While we wait for the coffee to boil, we tell the story of the old trading site Galtneset and the Opløfjord as one of the country`s best herring fjords. When we are ready for it, we walk back to Setran Adventure Farm.
