This is a shorter and simpler version of «Kingsroad Mountain Pass-3 days» where we also arrange for you a hike on the Kvamskleive section on the day of arrival. Only 1895, - NOK per person! Please read the terms below.


Follow the paths of the Viking Kings. Walk up the east side of famous Filefjell, to the Kingsroad highest point, and down the west side. Walk worry-free from east to west in Norway, through amazing history and breathtaking nature - while we take care of your luggage.

DAY OF ARRIVAL:
You have driven to Rogn camping in Vang in Valdres with a car and can check in for a nice afternoon and evening. You can also take a direct bus from Bergen (NW 162 Øst/Vest-Xpressen) and from Oslo (NW 160 Valdresekspressen). The bus routes follow the E16.
If you arrive relatively early in the afternoon/evening, you can walk the section of Kvamskleive which is in the vicinity. The trip can take a couple of hours. The hosts at Rogn camping will drive you to/from Kvamskleive if you make an request by phone or email on beforehand.
At capacity and after request, the hosts at Rogn Camping can also provide you with a history and nature guide in Kvamskleiva (not included in the tour price).

DAY 1:
You wake up to a good breakfast in a cozy and almost 200 year old local storehouse (called "Bu" locally) at Rogn. After breakfast, the hosts at Rogn camping will take you to Varpebrune (Varpe bridge). From there you will walk about half the section of Øye-Tyinkrysset up the east side of Filefjell.
The tour follows the authentic Kingsroad up Fløgstrøndfjorden (lake). Just before Kølabrune (Kola brigde) there is a sharp rise before the road flattens out towards the Tyinkrysset. In this moutain hamlet you are 900 m.a.s.l. Read more about the section Øye-Tyinkrysset here.

From the Tyinkrysset you follow the Kingsroad on the section Tyinkrysset-Kyrkjestølen, which takes you the last step up towards the high mountain. Much of the walk goes along the beautiful Otrøvatnet (lake) also called Støgofjorden 971 m.a.s.l. The hike goes partly on authentic Kingsroad, some times on the old E16, some times you have to cross the old road. The hill up from the Tyinkrysset is featured in several written travel stories from the 19th century. Especially the hills north of Tørisbrune (local name for Toris brigde) and up to the Otrøvatnet was hard for the horses.

The hike continues between Otrøvatnet and Støgonøse (mountain top) towards Nystuen. Then over a small hight they call «Varden» and down to Kyrkjestølane, which has a history from the Medieval Ages. Here stands St. Tomaskyrkja. And here you check in. You have walked about 11 kilometers from Varpe bridge. Your luggage has been brought here. 
You can buy supper/dinner at Kyrkjestølen (not included in the price). Read more about the section Tyinkrysset-Kyrkjestølen and the old marketplace at Kyrkjestølen here.

DAY 2:
After breakfast you start at Kyrkjestølen and walk along the E16 a couple of hundred meters towards the direction you came the day before, before entering the famous section Kyrkjestølen-Maristova, which takes you over the top of Filefjell and to the Kingsroad highest point - about 1250 m.a.s.l.
The road over the top, called «Murklopphøgda», has magnificent views of the peaks of Hurrungane. You pass «Stiftstøtta», a marble monument that marked the old divide between Akershus and Bergen counties. Here is a nice picnic area.
Up on the top, the terrain is easily walked and flat before the road goes steeply down towards Maristova at approximately 800 m.a.s.l. Maristova has had accommodation for travellers since the first half of the 14th century. The trip Kyrkjestølen-Maristova takes 3-6 hours. Read more about the section Kyrkjestølen-Maristova here.

From Maristova you go down the west side of Filefjell, on the section Maristova-Borlaug. The hike goes on authentic Kingsroad, nature trails, a little asphalt, past rivers and over streams, over small mountain plateaus and through spruce forest. You pass different cultural landscapes, small mountain farms and ruins after old farms. Just after the start at Maristova you can take a short detour around the Hoingane, an old mountain farm area with buildings from the medieval ages. A beautiful sight on this section is the suspension bridge called «Brattebakken bridge» built after inspiration of the Kingsroad bridges you see other places along the Kingsroad.
Finally, your hike ends in the hamlet Borlaug in upper Lærdal. You have walked about 18 kilometers and can check in at HI Borlaug for a shower and a dinner that you cook yourself in the guest kitchen. Your luggage has been brought here.
