Drive on E16 to Aurdal and exit towards Danebu (automatic toll). Park at the old ski slope.
From there, a path leads up to Lake Fræningen (picnic area and bathing place) and further on to the right towards Storstølsknatten 1124 m, first along the lake, later up and down into the birch forest. From Storstølsknatten the path continues southeastwards past Kringlestølen to the top of Bjørgovarden. Nice views in all directions. The return first leads west-, then northwestwards around Lake Langevatnet back to Kringlestølen and from here it follows the same way back. Alternatively follow the path to the left towards Storstølstjernet and the gravel road back to Danebu.
Clear path and blue markings on rock.
Standard clothing for light mountain walks: light hiking shoes, wind- and waterproof outer layer. No special equipment required.
