Viktig informasjon

Om Ridderspranget

Ridderspranget or The Knight’s leap is a small gorge in the river Sjoa by the outskirts of Jotunheimen National Park. Old Norwegian tales describes the story of a knight who escaped his followers by jumping across Ridderspranget together with the girl he loved. You will find more information about this story at site. 

The canyon is about 2 meters wide and you should definitely not try to jump across. But the canyon is definitely an interesting place to visit with the Sjoa river running through the gorge.  

Veibeskrivelse

About 5 km south of Randsverk on road 51 you will see a white sign for a place of interest. Continue straight on this gravel road until you get to the rather small parking lot. 

Turbeskrivelse

From the parking lot, it is a very short trail down to the river. Just follow the signs.
