Hemsila around - Cycling
Experience the beautiful Hemsila with this cycling trip. Take your bike on a trip alongside one of Norway's prettiest rivers!
How to get there
Drive east towards Ulsåk. Continue on RV52 until you see a sign for «Avfallsmottak” or “Torsetstølane”. Cross the bridge to the right and take a left to the “avfallsmottak” (renovation facilities). Park before the toll station. Alternatively you can park at Kiwi and ride your bike from there towards Torset. Take a right at Moen Camping and take the gravel road down to the left by the sign “Markegård”.
Parking will be available at Langeset avfallsmottak or if you chose to take a longer route, at Kiwi Hemsedal.
Bring a water bottle on a warm day, and don't forget your biking helmet!
Take your time and take in all the beautiful sights of nature, old buildings and waterfalls that you will get to experience on this trip.
Great roundtrip, but expect some climbing in the start. E-bike would be an advantage. If you choose to start your ride from Ulsåk/Torset you will be rewarded with a great view of the waterfall Hydnefossen along Hødnsvegen. Continue straight to the toll station and make the climb towards Krosstølane where you will pass old summer farms and idyllic landscape. From Grønlio you follow the rough gravel road along the river back to the toll station and if you need a break the dam Eikredammen is a beautiful spot to enjoy lunch with a view. Here you will also be able to find facilities with opportunities for a toilet break, a large parking space and the lovely waters contained by the dam.
Take a walk across the dam and if you are lucky, get to see it empty out into the ongoing river on the underside of the dam.
