Description

I started this hike at the Bragernes Church in the north of the city Drammen. From there, it is a short hike to the "Drammen Spiral," a lovely viewpoint with a parking area which is free. Next, I went to the lake "Klopptjern" then Svarttjern and eventually to Hvalsdammen. In Hvalsdammen, there are picnic tables, and local folk comes here to relax and swim. It is an excellent place to pitch your tent for a night. Next to "Landfalltjern" then "Myrdammen and finally "Gamledammen" lake. At the end of the hike, take a bus number three at "Turheisen" stop back to the city.
