The beautiful Hervenknappen peak is situated in the Totenåsen hills in Østre Toten, 784 metres above sea level. From the summit you can see vast expanses of the inland region of eastern Norway. In fact, from the top of Hervenknappen you can see more of Norway than from most other mountain peaks in the country.
