Andersnatten is a mountain located in Eggedal. Andersnatten is a distinctive, round-topped mountain that rises out of the valley floor. Andersnatten was featured in painting by both Theodor Kittetsen and Christian Skredsvig. The southeast wall is popular among climbers, both summer and winter.

The shifting mountain and forest terrain is ideal for long walks, and there are magnificent mountains waiting to be climbed. The bare face of Andersnatten has proved irresistible to many a mountaineer. There are well marked paths running between cabins and "seter" or mountain dairy farms. Surrounded by tarred timber walls, turf-covered roofs, and thc sound of cow bells, you will expenence old-fashioned mountain dairying and taste real "seter" cheese.

The magnificent natural surroundings have attracted artists and inspired many well known works of art. Sigdal and Eggedal has two of the best preserved homes of artists from the Golden Age of Norwegian art, Theodor Kittetsen´s home, Lauvlia, and Christian Skredsvig´s home, Hagan.
