Easy walking (no climbing or scrambling) ascent. Nice and wide view.

Tour description
Length: ca. 7 km one way
Duration: ca. 1,5 hrs up
Hight difference: ca. 160 meters
Suitable for children: recommended from ca. 8 yrs. This walk is very easy but maybe a bit boring for smaller children. Well suited for child carriers.

From the old ski slope, a path leads up to Lake Fræningen (picnic area and bathing place) and further on to the right towards Storstølsknatten 1124 m, first along the lake, later up and down into the birch forest. From Storstølsknatten the path continues southeastwards past Kringlestølen to the top of Bjørgovarden. Nice views in all directions. The return first leads west-, then northwestwards around Lake Langevatnet back to Kringlestølen and from here it follows the same way back. Alternatively follow the path to the left towards Storstølstjernet and the gravel road back to Danebu

Markings
Clear path and blue markings on rock.

Equipment
Standard clothing for light mountain walks: light hiking shoes, wind- and waterproof outer layer. No special equipment required.
