This is the easiest hike to get high up in the mountains as you can "cheat start" by taking the chairlift up. On the top, 1497 masl, you can see the entire Hemsedal valley, surrounding mountains and lakes. See the summer chair lift's opening hours. Buy a ticket to the lift at skistar.com.

The mountain cafe Fjellkafeen at the top of the chairlift is open when the chairlift is running and offers both delicious food and drinks. 

Author's advice

Some other options if you don't take the lift:

  • Our favorite is to start in the center of Hemsedal and go up the hiking trail Sollaust and then continue to Totten.
  • Go from the lift of the ski center and follow the tourist, number 11, to the Fjellkafeen.
  • Drive Holdeskarsveien from SkiStar towards Skigaarden and follow the tourist from there to Fjellkafeen.

 

Turn-by-turn directions

From the top of the chair lift, the marked trail starts slightly to the left. Follow the marked trail up the mountain. At the lift Totten2 and Tottetjedne, the trail turns upwards to the left along the lift. After the lift ends, the path continues upwards and slightly to the left into rocky terrain to the top. Return the same way.

Note! Remember to keep dogs on a leash, also in the high mountains.

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.

Follow the main road, Rv52, west out of the center and turn left to Hemsedal Ski Resort. Follow the road straight ahead to the car parks. Enter the ski resort and go to the Holvin Express chairlift.
