How to get there

Drive to Tuv, 4,6 km from the tourist office, and take a sharp right turn at the crossroads before the bridge, towards Grøndalen, but instead of following the road towards Grøndalen, follow the road to the right going upwards. Park by the watermill where the paved road ends and dirt road begins.

Parking

 Park your car at the start of the dirt road by the watermill. Make sure you don't block the road or other cars. 

 

Tip

Just before the the dirt road ends, there is a small path leading out to a lean-to where you can have a seat and admire the view. 

Description

Our easiest trip for the whole family, you can even bring a (good) stroller with you as there is a dirt road all the way to the top. On the way up to the top, you walk through a beautiful landscape with free grazing cattle so please be careful to close all gates behind you and keep your dog on a leash. There are many beautiful flowers and also wild berries to pick on the way. 

From the top, 804 masl, you have a nice view over the valley, both east- and westwards and over the ski resort, Fyri resort and the whole area from Hemsedal town centre to Skarsnuten.

At the top, there are link stations for TV, radio, telephone and broadband.

Tip! There are several options for a detour or a roundtrip when hiking Høllekølten, so please check the map for more interesting alternatives. 

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