The hike back goes the same way that you hike up, or you can take the Romsdal Gondola down and enjoy the surroundings while hovering 100 meters over the ground.

Beneath the water surface, you can still see remains of the old road, the foundations of the farmhouse and the gateway. We also visit Urasetra who is built into the ground to provide shelter from landslides. We take a coffe stop at fameous Hotel Union Øye, a swiss-style wooden hotel.
