Top view mountain close to Oslo
Less than 180 km away from Oslo famous mountain Gaustatoppen is a perfect destination for a day trip around Norway's capital.
With a height of 1,883 meters the view from the top is amazing. According to VisitNorway and Gaustabanen on best view days you can see a sixth of Norway's area. At clear days you can see the North Sea and also the full distance to the Swedish border.
The mountain top can be hiked (not in winter) or reached by Gaustabanen, an underground railway.
Every time I look at the top and the bottom photo I start smiling - full of happiness - that I had such a beautiful day at such a beautiful place. I hope that other people visiting that place in the future will share the same feeling.
