  • If you need to take a good walk in beatiful suroundings, Sognsvann is the place to go to. What a nice scenery!  more »
  • The scenery is nice, the hike around the lake is easy and approximately 3 km. Often many birds. The only drawback is that it may be a lot of people hiking and running.  more »
