This is one of the most convenient places to get outside near Oslo. Take bus 30 (Bygdøy) from Oslo central station or drive and park in one of the many car parks. This route will take you along the water, but there are chances to take the side trails as well and extend your hike.Show more

Nice tour through the Hardangervidda! The tour starts from Fagerheim Fjellstue. The well-marked DNT path leads along the north side of Storekrækkja to the Krækkja tourist hut. The trail is a bit rocky, but dry and easy to hike. Flat terrain, only flat just before Krækkja it gets a bit hilly. From Krækkja, follow the road southwest towards Halne and Kjeldebu. Cross the bridge over the river from Drageidfjord. Turn left just across the river and follow the path along the stream to Storekrækkja. Then follow the flat and beautiful path along the water back to Fagerheim. A great tour, also for children.Show more
