What Three Words
Geology and nature
There is an impressive cairn at the top of Gullbergtua at 463 m above the sea level from where you’ll be able to see great views. The rocks here were formed very close to the top of the 7 km thick Bjerkreim-Sokndal layered intrusion. The rock here is a type of granite (called charnockite) that contains nine minerals, including significant amounts of quartz.
The view to the north and northwest is across bare, rounded, rocky outcrops that form the quartz-bearing rocks at the top of the layered intrusion; they extend for about 4 km in this direction. Near Røyseland farm, rocks left behind by melting glaciers at the end of the last ice age have been used to build a ski jump in the last century.
