Queen Sonjas Panoramic TrailDate: Wednesday 9 dec 2020 - Sunday 28 Nov 2021
HM Queen Sonja of Norway is a passionate mountain hiker, and this is one of her favorite hikes in the Hardangerfjord region. The trail is in the high mountains between Kinsarvik and Lofthus and offers magnificent fjord views. The hike is long and demanding with a steep descent towards Lofthus. You will walk through forests, high mountains and lush orchards. Follow the dirt road from Røte up to Heng at 750 meters above sea level. From here the trail is marked with blue Ds (“Queen” in Norwegian is “Dronning”). The route down to Lofthus, including the historical “Monk steps” and hike down along the fruitfarms in Lofthus provides a nice ending of an spectacular tour.
