The 10-mile long hiking route Kongevegen over Filefjell takes you through some of the most beautiful landscapes in Norway. From the inland villages of Valdres via the high mountain on Filefjell and down to the narrow and dramatic fjord landscape in the innermost part of the Sognefjord. A journey between the parts of the country with the historic King's Road as a common thread throughout. The section between Vang and Lærdal was the most spectacular on the Bergen Royal Road. Today, the road is one of the finest road historical cultural monuments in the country.
Starting from Tyinholmen, you can choose several exciting stages. The nature experiences are spectacular.
Kongevegen has varying surfaces of gravel, grass, path and asphalt. The road can be both walked and cycled, but please be aware that the recommended cycle route in some places has a different route to the walking route.
The season for trips along Kongevegen starts in the April/May transition down in Lærdal and in Vang, while the snow disappears over Høgfjelle in late June. July and August are high season, but an autumn trip in September and October also offers great experiences.
