Timannsstølrunden is an enjoyable half-day family tour. It follows mostly forest roads. One kilometer is on a trail and another kilometer on the main road. This round-trip can be startet at different accommodations in Tisleidalen. We describe the tour from the Joker store in a clockwise direction.
Difficulty: easy–moderate, suitable for children (mind approx. 1.5 km in total along the main road)
Distance: approx. 17 km
Elevation gain: approx. 255 meters
From the Joker store, cycle along road 51 in the direction of Gol for about 250 m and turn left towards Merket. Follow the gravel road along the southern shore of Lake Pardisfjorden until Gudleikstølen. Here you turn right towards Timannsstølen. From Timannsstølen the farm road turns into a trail/cart tarck and you may need to walk with your bike for a bit more than one kilometer. Please pay attention to the map on this stretch since the signage is poor and you easily can loose your way. The trail may be wet at places. Reaching the road Hervasstølvegen, your turn right and cycle past Jakopstølen until you reach road 51. Follow it to the right for a bit more than one kilometer. Approx. 275 m after the turn-off to Vasetdansen Camping, turn right and follow the cycling tour Kjærlighetsstien along the southern bank of River Tisleia back to Bjørkestølen and road 51 again to the Joker store.
* There’s good fishing in the river and Lake Parisfjorden. Canoe rental at Merket.
* A nice side trip leads up to Lake Hærevatnet from where you meet Hervassvegen.
* The Timannssstølrunden can be combined with the cycling tours Pardisrunden and even Ølsjøbakkadn for a long and challenging day tour in the Tisleidalen area.
