About Ranastongi

Fantastic view over the mountains of Hemsedal, Jotunheim and the Jostedal glacier. Right behind the top there is a special “canyon” with a vertical drop of approx. 600 meters. Directions: From the Tourist Office drive 4.6 km to Tuv, take to the right into Grøndalen and then up the toll road Hydalsvegen (NOK 50). At the end of the lake, Vavatn, the road turns sharply to the right (at Vabuleino). In the turn there is a parking and a signpost Ranastøngji. The upper part of the trip is stony with marker cairns to the peak.
