For the longest time, one of my goals has been to discover more of Norway and I love being outside, so what’s better than going on a hiking trip?! 🙂
Last week I checked of another point of my Bucketlist; I hiked Gaustatoppen!
Gaustatoppen rises majestically above Rjukan in Telemark, Norway and with it’s 1833 meters above sea level, it provides one of the best panoramic views in Norway! On a clear day (which we we’re blessed with!), you can see as much as 1/6 of Norway. The trip is approximately 4,5 km one way and takes about 3 hours included breaks. One the top you’ll find Gaustadtoppen Tourist Cabin – the lodge under the sky where trekkers and mountaineers meet. They serve warm and cold drinks, a small selection of food, and the most delicious waffles I have ever tasted!
Here are some pictures if you’d like to see;
I have wanted to see more of Norway for the longest time, so I just decided to get started! Have you been to Gaustatoppen before? If not, it’s a trip I highly recommend! 🙂
