Hiking in Hafjell

Hiking in Hafjell is a beautiful experience and with the top of the Gondola as a starting point you will have lots of different hikes to chose from. Short trips in Mosetertoppen's nearby area, hikes in to the mountain or up to the top of Hafjell. Some chose to take the Gondola up to Mosetertoppen and walk down through the many cabin areas. When you are done hiking we recommend taking a lunch at the restaurant Skavlen, at the top station for the Gondola, while enjoying the view. 

The mountain is known for its great hiking, hunting and fishing areas. 

Familyfriendly trip to Fossen (Waterfall)

1,5 km hike in easy terrain from Mosetertoppen to Fossen. Great hike for families where you can tell the children stories along the way of what you might find behind the waterfall. 

If the kids are still full of energy when you get back to Mosetertoppen, they can play in the climbing tower at the playground. 


This hike starts at the parking lot behind Ilsetra. You will have an amazing view over the mountains as you walk up to the small cabin on the top. The hike is easy and fits all ages. 

Easy hike to Uksjøen

A short hike to Uksjøen, about 1,5 km one way with starting point from Pellestova. A very familyfriendly hike. Enjoy the scenery of the mountain and perhaps spend the night in a tent. Here you can go for a swim and try your luck at fishing.


Go for a hike through the Torchman's neck! When reaching the top of Brånån, you get an amazing view over Hafjell and the ski resort. The hike takes about 2 hours in a very steep terrain, at the west side of the river Lågen. To get to the best viewing point, follow marked path about 300 metres from the top.
