Hiking & Trekking in Valdres & Jotunheimen


Jun - Oct

Elevation gain:

520 m


12 km/3.5-4 hrs

Difficulty level:

Hike from a green valley to a bare mountain
The trail to Binnhovdknatten (1,165 m.a.s.l.) takes you through forests and agricultural landscapes, passing several lakes along the way. Having crossed the treeline, breathtaking views of Jotunheimen National Park await.

The hardest part is the 150-meter ascent to the peak. Except for this steep ascent, this is an easy-going hike, alternating between mountain trails and graveled roads.
