How to get there

In Ulsåk, turn to Lykkja, follow the road for a couple of hundred meters until you reach parking lot for Bygdatun. 

Parking

Use the parking lot for Hemsedal Bygdatun

Safety

The path is occasionally a little poorly marked, so remember to look at the map and see where you are going.

 

Tip

Visit Hemsedal Bygdatun and see what a farmyard in Hemsedal looked like in the 17th-18th centuries. When Bygdatunet is open you can have a guided tour around the premises and hear what life was like back in the days. 

You get a great view of the waterfall Hydnefossen in several places and when you are at the top of Stohøvda you see Skogshorn 1728 m above sea level and a great view over the waters of Lykkja.

When you return, you can take a detour to Geiteberget (Top 20) 834 m.a.s.l.
