“A nice hike a bit higher up the mountain will take you to this famous viewpoint giving you exceptional views of Tyrifjord and surrounding areas on a clear day. It is located 484 meter above sea level and the King visited it in 1832. From then on it was called Kongens Utsikt (King's view). Enjoy some rest and food upon arrival while you try the panorama picture settings on your phone/camera.”
