When Jakob Aaberg was 50 years old, he wished for help to carry the material to a cabin, which would later be called Jakobsbu. This wish was fulfilled and the cottage was finished in 1993. The place which Jakobsbu is built on, is a former pasture for cows, while the mountain farm of the farm Aaberg was on Tua, which is higher up and further north in the terrain.
The path to Tua continues right up from Jakobsbu. From Tua you can enjoy the view of the Oldedalen Valley from Melkevollsbreen in the south to Sunde in the north. The mountain farm on Tua was in use until 1948. Today only the foundations remain. From Jakobsbu it is also nice to continue to Brenndalen and the Brenndal glacier. Follow the signs.
