After your train ride, enjoy a relaxed loop-walk around Geilo’s Ustedalsfjorden. The path has been developed over the past number of years to the extent that 70% of this walk is on gravel or concrete pathways alongside the fjord. Information boards are dotted around, providing details about the history of the area including information about the flora & fauna, early settlements and Viking burial mounds, all of which you can see evidence of.

 

This is a gentle walk with very little ascent, however there are sections where the path passes through extremely boggy area; be prepared to get your feet wet!
