C94 A6559

Welcome to Hemsedal for cross country skiing. In Hemsedal we have 250 km cross country tracks, have a long cross country season and starts the season very early.

Keep track of groomed cross-country trails via live GPS tracking onskisporet.nohere you can follow where and when the grooming machine has run the slopes.

Check out our Winter map online with an overview of the cross-country trails, or pick it up at Hemsedal Tourist Office, reception at SkiStar Lodge or many other places around town. If you want a more detailed map, we recommend the hiking map Hemsedal 1:25 000. This can be purchased at the tourist office and sports shops.

In Hallingdal you'll also find trails on Golsfjellet / Valdres and towards Ål, and the Adventure Trail which runs from Hemsedal to Flå. Always remember a map and compass when you go on a trip in the high mountains.

Trail descriptions with maps, elevation curves and gps code can be found in our Hemsedal app.

Gravset ski stadium

Gravset is the largest exit point for cross-country skiing. Here there is a large parking lot (parking fee), cafe in weekends and holidays, heated room and toilet open daily and a good starting point for different circular trails in different degrees of difficulty and lengths: classic, ski play area and light trails (until 10 pm). Here, artificial snow is made as soon as it is cold enough in the autumn, which may offer early skiing from November. See webcam.

Artificial snow for securing early skis

Artificial snow is produced at Gravset ski arena (750m + 1 km + 2 km), as soon as it is cold enough to produce snow. At Gravset and in Tottenskogen there are light trails until 10/11 pm.

Illuminated cross-country trails

  • Gravset ski arena has illuminated tracks on the 1 km, 2 km, 3 km, 5.5 km
  • Tottenskogen ski and roller ski arena, between the town center and ski resort, two circular trails, a total of 4.5 km
  • From Moaveien (by the ski resort) to Tuv along the illuminated walkway (the cross-country track from SkiStar Lodge to Moaveien is unfortunately not illuminated).

Cross-country and walk ways in the area ski center and town center can be seen in the Winter map.

Cafes by the tracks

Contribute to the beautiful trails in Hemsedal

The trails are prepared and maintained by Hemsedal Utmarksservice (HUS)

Since many people go straight into the track from the cabin and thus miss the opportunity to make their contribution at the parking gate at Gravset or by SMS at Trefta or Hestanåni, we want to give you the opportunity to make your voluntary contribution directly to Utmarksservice; account number 2367 20 50502.

Feel free to pay a voluntary contribution to the trail. Thanks!
