An intermediate Topp20 hike that is suitable for accustomed hikers. From Kvitingatn there is a beautiful view towards the ski resort of Hemsedal, the Topp20 hike to Harahødn and the area around. 

 

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

Author's advice

If you continue a bit further up the road when arriving by car, then you'll find Harahorn Fjellgård, a beautiful mountain hotel and restaurant. They serve fantastic food with flavours from the mountains around you. 

Turn-by-turn directions

From the parking, follow the road up to the right. The marked trail soon descends into the forest on the right. You will cross the stream Hølsteinsåne over a bridge and the trail then turns left up along the stream. After the forest, you come up to beautiful high mountain landscape. The marked trail then turns to the right and it gets steeper up the ridge. After the first peak, the trail flattens and you follow the beautiful mountain ridge all the way to the top of Kvitingatn, 1426 masl. Return the same way.

 

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

Safety information

  • A topographic hiking map is recommended.
  • Always choose hikes based on your ability and current conditions. The weather changes quickly in the mountains.
