The hike over Filefjell, from Kyrkjestølen to Maristova, takes you over the highest point of Kongevegen. The high mountain trail, above the treeline, provides incredible views of Jotunheimen and the nearby fjords.
Several great points of interest are found along the hiking route. Take a look at St. Thomaskyrkja at the starting point by Kyrkjestølen. When you reach the highest point of Kongevegen you will pass a monument in marble called Stiftstøtta, raised when the road first was constructed.
