Stairway to heaven – or stairway to Hallingskarvet? Both real awesome choices, but the 2000 steps that lead us directly up to the mountain massif Hallingskarvet National Park was this weekend’s winner for sure.
So, once again me and puppy packed our backpack and headed for a sunny Sunday adventure. From Geilo we continued on a toll road (40 NOK/have some coins ready!) upwards all the way to Prestholtseter, where we parked and started our hike.
Here we are at Skarvsenden – this hike’s highest point 1 705 meters above sea level. Yes, it’s yet another big pile of rocks/steinrøys we are balancing, and we do love it. The word “Skarv” actually means bare mountain or rock.
A little lunch break at a view point up there. Here me and puppy where alone, most hikers that day just followed the main trail – today we didn’t. If I see a tiny detour trail, I’m usually too curious too curious to ignore it 😀
The last part, after coming down from the mountain trail, is on the gravel road towards Prestholtseter. Autumn is for sure a favorite hiking season. Lots of hiking people this day,so me and puppy drove down to a gas station to get a cheap and tasty cafe latte:D
Ok, we will for sure be back as there are other hikes to discover in this area, but first thing first, until then – tada dear readers 😉
