About Utsikten

Utsikten (The View) is a well-known hiking destination from Eidsbugarden. It was Aasmund Vinje Olavson who named this peak, and it is probably due to the stunning views over Jotunheimen and Falketind, Uranostind and Hurrungane. Utsikten is one of the closest peaks from Eidsbugarden and is a well-suited destination for all whether you choose skis, hiking equipment or snowshoes. This is a simple and relatively short trip without particularly steep terrain, and is therefore well suited for those who do not have as much experience with summits in winter.
