Overview
More
Forest road/path from Lofthus to Nosi (950 m.a.s.l.). This is one of the gateways to Hardangervidda. At 650-700 metres are the monk steps made of stone, probably laid by monks who settled at Opedal in the 12th. century. Lofthus - Nosi return abt 4 hrs walk. For pack horses, contact the tourist office or Van der Tuuk guide service.
