Hiking to Synesvarden and “Mother Norway” These heath moorlands lying in the municipalities of Ha and Time are representative of the landscape of Jaeren’s traditional grazing landscape and are therefore significant in a national cultural historical way. In addition to the view you will see hares, foxes, deer and varied bird and plant life. Steinkjerringa – the stone Wife or Mother Norway as it was originally called, is a sculpture in a scenic conservation area. “Mother Norway” was hewn in 1898-99 by Sigurd Sorendsen. In 1925 Emelankton Aadnesen from Naerbo and the youth of Naerbo and Varhaug joined forces to purchase the sculpture. In1927 it then was erected in position at Anikdalshea. Access: Own transport.
