Winter Explorer - Multi-day snowshoe tour with guided activities
The King’s Road is a journey through history. The massive stone walls along the route were hand built by thousands of workers. The route is based on old trails that had been in use since the Middle Ages. The road was originally opened in 1793 and was the main road between Oslo and Bergen in the 18th and 19th century.
Today, a major part of this historical route has been restored into an award-winning hiking trail, which takes you from the farmlands of Valdres in the east, over the mountain plateau of Filefjell, and through the Lærdal valley towards the Sognefjord in the west. The 100 km route consists of four original road sections connected by paved secondary roads.
The authentic sections make up a total of 45 km and are perfect trails for snowshoeing.
