About Hugakøllen and the Kings Road

Pretty technical round trip from Vang via the mountain Hugakøllen and the Old Kings Road back to Vang. 
You start off easy along the mountain-road from Vang to Syndin. The track besides the river Ala is mostly good flow, but some harder parts. Up to Hugakøllen you should prepare for some pushing. If you feel strong take the bike all the way to the top before you start the downhill part of the round. Down to Gamle Kvam it´s pretty technical down hill biking, and the last bit on The Kings Road back to Vang is just beautiful.
