Child friendly hike with great view.

Gjuvhovd has become a very popular tour and is especially child friendly. The tour starts at Gjuvså in Tinn Austbygd and takes about half an hour one way. At the top you will find a great viewpoint with fantastic views over Lake Tinnsjö and Gaustatoppen. Along the route, many nice trolls are placed so that the children can count how many they find.
