Hiking in Hadeland
Experience Hadeland's cultural landscape
Explore the cultural landscape at Hadeland – from frame to frame!
Recommended trips, Jevnaker
Follow the pilgrims' path to Sognsbygda, and you get to enjoy 6.5 km of beautiful views of forests, fjord, cornfields, meadows, and pastures. Greeting you along the way are horses, goats, sheep, cattle, and bees. We recommend a break on the bench by Steinbråtan, and also a wade in Randsfjorden by Sløvika camping. In Sognsbygda, there are lovely benches on which to rest as you climb the steep hills to Rudstoppen on the border with Gran. For a longer hike, follow the pilgrims’ path all the way to Gran Bondelag’s frame installation at Granavollen (approx. 18 km).
The cultural landscape frame is located by Jevnaker church.
Recommended trips, Gran
The cultural landscape frame is located at Granavollen.
Follow Kongevegen and the pilgrims’ path from Granavollen to Tingelstad; approx. 3.5 km through a rolling cultural landscape with arable land and working farms. This stretch offers historical attractions abound, with wildflowers and wild raspberries as backdrop. At Tingelstad, you will find Hadeland Folk Museum where you can buy a well-deserved ice cream.
Recommended trips, Lunner
The cultural landscape frame is located by Lunner church.
We recommend a stroll along the old narrow lane from Lunner church down to Lund, by Lundby school! This lane was the route used by the locals to and from school and church, and was cleared by the local history society, Lunner Historielag, in 2020. Start at the back of the church, below the stone wall, and head towards Lund. This can also be made into a round-trip by heading towards the cultural trail at Grindvoll or towards the centre of Lunner.

This summer, the Pilgrim Centre has collaborated with Hadeland’s farmer’s associations on the nationwide art installation campaign #komhit. As part of this, cultural landscape frames have been set up by the churches as these are often in an elevated and visible location and thus offer excellent views.
The frames are in locations where it is possible to park and take a walk in the countryside, and where we know there is way-marking. It is also important that the locations are looked after throughout the summer season, and are possible to reach by car.
Show consideration during your visit, and follow these basic guidelines:
• Adhere to the code of conduct for public right of access
• Park at designated car parks and campsites
• Take your litter home or use the bins provided
• Remember the rules for keeping dogs on a lead; respect campfire bans and restrictions, and use designated sites only
• Try to use local shops along the route
• Drive nicely, but not too nicely – keep up with the traffic
• Last, but not least; ENJOY your trip!
