Ridderspranget

10 km north of Hindsæter on road 51 you will come to Ridderspranget (Knights jump), the most narrow part in the canyon of the Sjoa river. You can follow the sign from road 51 down to a parking area from where you walk about 100 meters to Ridderspranget. The knight Sigvat managed to get rid of his persecutors at this place, when he kidnapped his girl, jumped over the river with his horse, and saved her from marrying knight Ivar Gjessling.
