Raudberg - Topp20 Hemsedal
From the top of Raudberg, you can see most of the other Topp20 hikes. The trail starts off in an old mountain farming area and follows a stream almost all the way to the top.
How to get there
Drive to Tuv and continue for 13 km on road 52, exit at Ershovd. Park at the exit and follow the marked gravel road/path to Ershovd.
Parking by rv. 52 by the exit to Ershovd.
Bring snacks and water with you. It might be possible to drink water from the stream, but be careful if it is a lemming (the small rodents) year then you should not drink water from streams. Remember good shoes, as well as the path, can be wet.
Bring snacks with you and enjoy the view from different places, there is no reason to rush to the top!
This is a hike for intermediate hikers who enjoy walking straight up to the top. You start the hike at Ershovd, the old mountain farm area, and you follow the blue marks all the way to the top! You follow a small stream which is a common place for sheep and reindeer to come for their morning and afternoon drink, so please remember to keep your distance and your dog on a leash. Along the stream, you will see many different waterfalls which make a beautiful hike. At one point you might lose the track, after the area of small bushes, just remember to look for the blue marks that will lead you to the top.
The mountain Raudberg splits the valleys Mørkedalen and Grøndalen and you can see all of Hemsedal as well as parts of Jotunheimen.
As this hike is a bit more intermediate we only recommend bringing children who are used to walking in the mountains, to avoid any unpleasant experiences.
