Skiing tours

Creating your own ski tracks on vast expanses and in noiseless surroundings has a particular charm. National parks Hardangervidda and Hallingskarvet encircle Finse, and by New Year’s Eve the snow has arrived. The first marked ski route of the season goes to Klemsbu and attracts keen skiers who thrive in the polar January mood. As a skiing tourist in Finse you usually follow the marked trails. The farther into the winter season, the longer the days become. This means additional marked trails of varying distance and difficulty becoming available. Not only is the hotel close to train tracks, but staked trails start just about 100-200 meters from the hotel and skis can be taken to your doorstep. It does not get easier!

There are good opportunities from Finse in terms of ski tours in the surrounding areas. You take short trips of 1-2 hours or a long day for 6-8 hours. The trip can take you 100 meters uphill or traverse flat terrain. Skiing tours on the frozen Finse waters can be a nice option for beginner skiers or for people who want to ski a less demanding area. The terrain around Finse has easy routes, but there is also landscape which is more wild and difficult for the more experienced.

We highly recommend you using a map and compass (and possibly GPS) when you go on a trip from Finse. The weather can change quickly! Map and almost any necessary outdoor equipment can be purchased at the front desk at our hotel Finse 1222.
