Gaustatoppen

Gaustatoppen is claimed to be one of the most beautiful mountains in Norway, © Stegarud Foto

The best place to start off on a trek up to the top is from Stavsro (1,173 metres). The car park here has a kiosk and toilets.

The trail is well marked with red T's all the way up and it is approx. 4 km one way. It takes most people about two hours to reach the summit and a little less on the way down.

You might find stones with wave patterns on them from when the mountain was at the bottom of a long lost ocean
