Overview

Hemsedal has many beautiful hiking tours for all levels. The hikes are well marked and signed and you can buy a very good hiking map for Hemsedal were you have all hiking paths. One of the tours we recommend is Veslehodn 1300 masl. Veslehodn is a spectacular hike with great scenery and heights. The trip can be combined with a trip to Hydnefossen that has a waterfall of 140 meters, or visit the older brother Storehodn 1482 masl. Velsehodn is a trip for the whole family or for the more active persons. The trip takes about 5 hours up and down and is a total 4.2 km. Every Tuesday and Friday at 10:00 am from 5. of June, there is guided tour to Velsehodn. The starting point is outside of Hemsedal Tourist Office . The trip is part of Topp20 program to Hemsedal, which means that the trip is well marked and signposted. Have a great experience in our beautifull nature! Please do not litter!

If you're used to hiking in the mountains, this trip is both short and easy. The view is great, but keep the kids on a tight leash both at the summit (the dropoff is vertical for several hundred feet) and at the edge of Hydnefossen....More

Great sense of achievement when you reach the top of Veslehodn as the view of the valley is amazing. It is an easy hike to a height of 1300. Look out for the blue painted stones to mark the trail. At the top of the...More

A spectacular view, no climbing - stay away from the edge. Drive to a nearby parking lot, easy walk for approx 60 minutes - in good weather this is a very nice trip!
