Start your hike Holandsmelen from parking 68.176591, 13.524033.
Hike on the tractor road and then into the forest. This is where the road ends and the hiking begins. Follow the path up through the forest. After you pass through the forest you will see the path then winds upward. It’s a little long way but very easy.
Where to stay
You will find many places for wild camping on the plateau after the forest. There is water here.
But I see no reason to climb this mountain with a tent. Better leave your stuff downstairs. For example in a camping on the beach Haukland.
