Mountain to fjord


Mountain to fjord: Spring's most beautiful adventure! With their leads do you go from Finse, over Hardangerjøkulen and down to the beautiful Hardanger.

Finse during May is wonderful in many ways. The days are long, the temperature is nice and skiing conditions are impeccable. You can take with you your work and continue with it up here, or you can travel a weekend with the family. Combined with skiing, you will at least always get the beautiful nature! The best spring skiing starts with us, 1222 meter above sea level, with the tour “Fjell til fjord” (Mountain to fjord). We walk over Hardangerjøkulen (1876 m) and enjoy the panoramic view of the southwest of Norway. Further we go down towards Simadalsfjord, where we take off the skis and walk down towards the Hardanger Fjord. We go thus from winter paradise and down to the smell of green grass and blossoming fruit trees.

This skiing trip is more demanding and you have to have skis with steel edges. It is also an advantage of having mastered going down relatively steep slopes and also going up steep heights. The ride is about 25 km long, and we spend around eight to nine hours including good breaks along the way. Arriving in the bay awaits transport which takes us to Ustaoset, before the train returns to Finse.
