A trip that offers culture, nature and great views. The hike starts at an old farm from the 18th century that doubles as a museum in summer, Bygdatunet museum. From Geiteberget, a great lookout point at 834 m above sea level, you get an incredible view. From here you can see Hydnefossen by Veslehødn, Storehødn and Totten. You also see the center of Hemsedal and further west in the valley.

Please note! There are grazing sheep in the area, so remember to close gates and keep your dog on a leash.

Author's advice

Take some time and explore the old mountain farm from the 18th century at Bygdatunet. You can walk the grounds anytime and in summer the museum is open.

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking, follow the road up trough the museum grounds which is a Norwegian farm from the 18th century. Keep left of the museum and follow the fence until you reach a  gate with blue marks on it. Follow the marked trail. The trail winds up through the forest, and gets steeper as you go. When the trail starts to flatten, watch out as the path to the look out turns sharply left.

Please note! There are grazing sheep in the area, so remember to close gates and keep your dog on a leash.

Safety information
