Description

Easy but rewarding ascend to the viewpoint "Utsikten" in the southwestern part of Jotunheimen.

Length: approx. 3 km one way
Duration: approx. 1−1.5 hrs. up
Altitude difference: 425 meters to Utsikten
Suitable for children: from 4-5 yrs.

Directions
Follow the E16 to Tyinkrysset and exit onto road 53 towards Øvre Årdal. After 4 km, turn right on road 252 to Eidsbugarden. Parking area near the Fondsbu DNT cabin (fee).

Description
At first, the route follows the DNT trail to Yksendalsbu (marked with red T’s). However, at the first crossing, the route to Utsikten continues to the right. Once you reach the top, Utsikten really lives up to its name, since “Utsikten” means “the view.” From there, you can continue further uphill towards the highest point on the ridge, Skjenegge. The panoramic view to Jotunheimen is sensational. Also, there’s a marked route from Tyinholmen to Utsikten.

Equiment
Walking shoes, appropriate clothing, maybe some snacks and something to drink
