When: May – October
Distance: 2 km one way

A perfect 30 minute hike for the whole family and avid hikers alike. This short but rewarding hike takes you to the top of Hafjell, just a stones throw from the hotel.

The trail is roughly 2 km long and starts just by the hotel gates. On a clear day you can see for miles and if you look closely you can even catch a glimpse of an Olympic icon, ‘’Fakkelmannen,’’ carved in to the forest on the opposite side of the valley. You can also enjoy wonderful views over the Gudbrandsdal valley towards skeikampen and the distant peaks of the Jotunheim and Rondane

Dress for the weather

Always pack some extra clothes should the weather turn nasty.

The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable and change in the blink of an eye. We  therefore implore all our guest top pack accordingly and ideally follow the three layer system: a base layer (t-shirt/thermal top), a mid layer (insulated jacket/fleece) and an outer layer (wind/water resistant shell).

Using three layers allows you to regulate temperature thus keeping you warm should the weather get cold or take one off to cool you down.

If you are planning to stop for lunch it is advisable to pack an insulated pad to sit on.
