Destination: Balbergtoppen in Lillehammer, Norway Distance: 8,2 km Time: 2 hours Difficulty: Medium
Yesterday I brought my two youngest siblings, along with my boyfriend and my other sister Øyvår, all the way up to Balbergkampen in Lillehammer, Norway. It was actually my sister Øyvår who suggested this hike. A distance of approximately 12km. This is if you choose to take the longer path both up and down the mountain, like we did. I actually wasn’t aware that there was a shorter route also. Guess that’s on me for doing bad research. But if you choose to take the same path we did up to Balbergkampen (the longer one that is), and then the shorter path down again, this hike is estimated to be about 8.2km, instead of 12km. However if you’re up for a challenge, I guess you could take the longer path both ways.
On top of the mountain, there is also a swing nearby the viewpoint. Both children and adults seem to enjoy the view from this swing. It actually makes a great motive for photography!
