Eastern Norway Viken RINGERIKE

Ringkolltoppen - what a view!

Overview
Details

The Top of Ringkollen. A short hike with a beautiful view!

Ringkolltoppen, a quick peak-hike!

Ringkolltoppen offers spectacular, panoramic views. On a clear day, you can easily see Gaustatoppen in Telemark in the horizon. The view is just as stunning towards Blefjell, Norefjell and Valdres, and if you bring binoculars it is possible to see Hallingskarvet. Tyrifjorden cuts gently through the beautiful scenery at Røyse on its way to become Holsfjorden somewhere in the distance. On the other side, the magnificent Finnemarka towers up from the fjord with its steep, forest-clad hillsides.

Ringkolltoppen is relatively flat at the top, with plenty of space for children to run around. A BBQ hut at the top serves as shelter from the weather or just a nice spot to enjoy your lunch, something that makes this a child-friendly and fun hike.

The trip is approx. 1 km, and leads through relatively easy forest terrain with a moderate climb the last few hundred metres to the top.

Children: Suitable for children aged 5-6, if used to hiking.
Accommodation: Possible to pitch a tent and set up hammock.

How to get there:  
There is a toll road up to Ringkollen (cards accepted).

Starting point for the trails is at the far end of the car park by Ringkollstua. The shortest route to the top is the red cross-country ski trail from Ringkollstua. This is a gentle climb through slightly hilly forest terrain, and the way-marking is easy to follow. The last few hundred metres to the top start with a short, steep hill followed by a flatter, more even climb. As you reach a bright, pine-dominated forest, the surface is mostly smooth rock. Distance to the top from Ringkollstua is approx. 1 km, and the trip takes some 15 minutes for an adult walking at normal speed.
