The King’s Road across Filefjell
The King’s Road over Filefjell passes through Borgund Hyttesenter and Camping, which is located right next to the most spectacular hikes on this side of the mountain. Vindhellevegen is a mere 1,5 km walk, and Sverrestien 1,8 km. These hikes are roundtrips, and takes about 3 hours in total. A popular path that many chooses to follow is the one starting with Vindhellavegen that takes you to the former E16 motorway at Rimskjold, where you continue 100 meters east to the sign indicating the start of Sverrestien, and follow that path down to Borgund stave church.
Another roundtrip is the one that starts from Sjurhaugfossen. This route takes you along the Kings Road up the the old croft Galdane, where you can witness first-hand how people used to live back in the day. Keep going along the river to Selthun bridge, the eastwards along the hiking path to Koren. Take a right and enjoy the views from Bergenske Postvei before you end up at the former E16 motorway.
Even though these hikes can be done in a day, we recommend setting aside two.
At Borgund Hyttesenter and camping you can enjoy a well deserved dinner after a solid day of hiking.
