Hornsjø round trip

When: June- October
Distance: Approx. 25 km

A classic!

The route starts just down from the hotel and continues on gravel roads for the duration. The terrain is undulating and fairly easy going with many flat stretches and plenty of places to stop along the way such as Kriksvika and Reinsfjell to name but a few.  

The way down to Hornsjøen itself adds an extra 3 km (total) on to the trip but is definitely worth it. Here you will find a tranquil lake with a small row boat which is free to use.

This trip is ideally suited to adults and older children.

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.
