Grønsennknippa rundt is a shorter version of the Store Syndinrunden cycling tour and an excellent choice as daytrip for active families. En route there are opportunities to take a swim or hike to the mountain top of Grønsennknippa.
Difficulty: moderate, recommended for older children
Distance: 32.5 km
Elevation gain: approx. 615 meters
From Vaset, follow the Panoramavegen road westbound in the direction of Nøsen. Enjoy a nice viewpoint with great vistas that extend all the way to Jotunheimen's many peaks in clear weather. From there it’s mostly downhill to lake Rensenn where you’ll find a nice sandy, shallow beach. This is a beautiful spot to take a break and go swimming. In July and the beginning of August, the open summer mountain farm Lisjordestølen can be visited.
Continue for another approx. 800-900 meters and exit to the right onto Jaslangvegen. Now you follow Jaslangvegen along the mountain farms to the bridge over the River Buaråne, but don't cross it. Instead, keep going on Jaslangvegen straight/half right uphill towards the beautiful Jaslangen mountain farm area. When you reach the top you will have the mountain Grønsennknippa on your right. Continue straight ahead to the farm area of Trollhovd and follow the road in a half circle around the hill Nørdre Trollhovd on its southern side. Having reached the other side of the hill, turn right and follow the signs back to Vaset, passing Søre Trollhovd, Murkelie and Lake Vasetvatnet.
* Bring a hiking or cycling map scaled 1:50.000 since the signage along this route may be of varying quality.
* Hike to the summit of Grønsennknippa from Grønsennhøgde, in total approx. 2.5−3 hrs.
* River Buaråne offers good fishing.
