Knutshø ridge

Knutshø has an incredible view along the entire ridge and extremely varied landscape. The trail is not marked, but there are signs directing you. Make sure to hike Knutshø in nice weather. The starting point is Vargebakken along highway FV 51. Following a few hundred metres of trail, you reach the ridge itself after a bit of scrambling (which may be challenging under wet conditions or strong winds). At the summit of Knutshø you have Besseggen in view on the other side. Continue further north along the ridge until you get down to Leirungsåi. Head left towards lake Øvre Leirungen, where you will eventually pass a nice, small sandy beach. The round-trip takes 5 to 6 hours.
