When: May – October
Distance: 3 km one way

A fantastic short hike for everyone, especially those on the look out for a fantastic view without the demanding hike up. At roughly 3 km long, you can choose to follow one of two trails up to the top. The first starts at Pellestova and the other at the large car park just by Ilsætra, the latter following the trail over Slåsæterfjell.

 If you want to make it a round trip, you can take the trail from Pellestova thought the small contingent of homesteads before heading up the slope, to the top and then making your way back down  over Slåsæterfjell, ending up at the car park behind Ilsætra. From there its just a short hike back to Pellestova.  This route is about 9kms long and takes around 2 – 3 hours to complete and offers sublime views of peaks in both he Rondane and Jotunheim Ranges.

The trail starts just outside the hotel. From there head down the gravel road to the picnic bench where you will pick up signs for Nevelfjell, and from there  on the trail is marked with red T’s all the way to the top.

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.
