Sunday morning at Kongens Utsikt

I live in a beautiful place. It actually took me a few years to begin to really appreciate the landscape in Hole and Ringerike – it just could not be compared to the arctic landscapes I grew up in.

However, the view from Kongens Utsikt (The King’s View) is nothing but amazing, although it’s only 441 m above sea level, and 380 m over the fjord. The path to Kongens Utsikt is relatively short, but some parts are steep enough, which makes it the perfect destination for a nice Sunday or afternoon walk in fresh air!

/We began our trip at Kleivstua, a beautiful mountain hotel and restaurant. You can begin the walk further down, at Sundvollen, as well, but at this point you’re already about half-way to Kongens Utsikt//

//The rest of Hole in the front, and Ringerike (the municipality with the closest city centre, and also where we work) begins in the far back.//
