Brurastakken hill is a wonderful destination for geologists and other stone or hiking enthusiasts. There is a waymarked path leading up to the top of Brurastakken and a separate geological trail starting in the harbour for small boats in Herland. From the harbour, walk up the hill. Take a left at the post boxes by the first house on the left. The path initially crosses some marshy ground then climbs gently over heather and rock. After 1 km, you will arrive at the “Tyskarhytta”. This was used by the German forces as a vantage point and for accommodation during the war.
A small distance from the top of Brurastakken, you will come to a junction where the path is signposted to the main road. If you descend here, it is a 2 km walk to Herland. Further up towards the top, you will find another junction signposted to the geological trail (Geologiløypa), which is 2 km long. This trail takes you back down to the coast, following the side of Brurastakken facing the water, and providing a close-up view of the layers of folding rock from the Devonian period. The path is slightly steep close to the coast and is wet in parts. From the water's edge, you have a slight climb back up to the main road. The area has a rich and varied flora.
If you start your walk on the elevation before Herland, you can choose between walking south on the geological trail, which is 2.5 km long. The other option is to walk north up through the gulley blasted out by the Germans during the war, a distance of 0.6 km to Brurastakken. From there, it is a 2 km walk on an easy downward slope to Herland.
