About Grønsennknipa

Grønsennknipa is one of many signature hikes in Valdres, and gives you a perfect 360 degree view as soon as you have reached the top. The hike is family friendly and has no steep sections.

Getting there

Via Vaset
This is the recommended route as it is one of the most beautiful drives in Valdres. From route E16, exit by the Ulnes church and follow the signs to Panoramavegen and Vaset (toll road).

Continue on the same road in the direction of Nøsen and turn right by the containers, a few hundred meters before you reach Nøsen Fjellhotell. Continue for another 4 kilometers until you reach a road crossing at Buaråne. Turn right towards Jaslangen (another toll) and continue towards Grønsennhøgda.

Park by the picnic area on the left side of the road.

Via Trollhovd
From route E16, exit by Røn over the Fosheim Bridge. Turn right and after 1.5 kilometers turn left towards Trollhovd. Follow the gravel road (toll road) and keep straight. Turn right at Nørre Trollhovd and keep driving until you reach the parking area at Grønsennhøgda, which is to the right when coming this way.
