Geführte Tour nach Vindhella


Täglich 24. Juni - 15. October


Die Tour wird auf Norwegisch und Englisch geführt:

Perhaps one of the greatest engineering feats in road construction. Perhaps the most famous section of the King's Road across Filefjell. However, the famous Vindhella is so much more.

NB: The tour will be served in English and Norwegian. Tours in German on demand; write to us (groups 5+).

Every day at 14:30 a guide will take you to the famous Vindhella. You will learn about the King's Road and about the construction of Vindhella itself, where sharp hairpin bends meander through a narrow pass.

You will hear about the construction, about the workers, about slave labor and punishment, about railings and stones, about colors and kings.

But also that the Vindhella pass was a strategic point of power in ancient times and the narrowest passage between east and west in southern Norway. Here is a hill fort, probably ancient defense facilities, and the site for an ambush by the medieval rebel army «Birkebeinerne».
