About Kongevegen Høre - Åsvang

This road is the oldest that runs through the village. The road you are now going to go, has been developed to a sort of cart road standard, and is now a pleasant, grassy overgrown footpath, full of cultural heritage. So if are you interested in history , this is the trip for you. Several pages could be written about people and events along the road, but we'll keep the secrets until you start walking, because you will get first class information on 10 information boards . From the starting point of Høre stave church, walk the road 400 meters northwest through Kviisgrende. After the last farm below the road, you will find signs showing "Kongsvegen". Then it's all about giving yourself enough time and enjoy the walk. When you get to the tenth information board along the way, you've come to Ljøsno, the remains of the residence of the thief Arnfinn i Bakka. Kongsvegen further from the west end of Laglim is partially "worked up" and incorporated into agricultural soil. We continue instead on the Pilgrims way, straight to Tørpegårdene. It is marked with wooden poles with the pilgrim logo on them. By Tørpegårdene you meet the paved county road 302, and you turn right and follow the asphalt up to the church on Åsvang. After about 400 meters along theasphalt, you cross the river Rysna on the bridge. The shortest path to the church continues straight along the asphalt for about 1 km. Alternatively, take the farm road to the left after the bridge and go through Belsheim up to the church, "the Belsheim trip". Overall the trip is 7km from church to church. Getting there: From E16 take off at Ryfoss in Vang Municipality and follow the fylkesvei upward and to the left until Høre stave church, where there's a parking lot.
