Knutshø

This is a good alternative to the Bessegen hike.

This is a good alternative to the Bessegen hike. That’s why this walk is called the mini Besseggen.

Drive to the plateau of Valdresflya hiking resort. Park on the left side of the road and follow the tracks marked Knutshö. The track starts at the bridge crossing the river Varga. This track is quite steep. It is a magnificent trek with lots of places where you can rest and with great views. 


Don’t leave the track and especially don’t travel to the left of it as it can be very steep and you can become stuck. You can carry on over the mountain and walk back along the lake shore of Leirungen and the river Leirungsaai.

The trip to the top of the mountain takes about 1.5 to 2 hours and the whole trip is about 5 hours. It is not recommended for people who are anxious over steep heights.
