Beautiful full day trip with views of Hardangervidda, Hardangerjøkulen and Hallingskarvet.
Follow Pariserløypa from Vestlia up to Hakkeset, or take the chair lift to save some energy. Continue in beautiful terrain to Grønebakken and towards Ustetind. Turn north to Ustaoset and continue over Eimehæe to Prestholt, before you enjoy the last slopes back to Havsdalen and Geilo.
During this long day tour you are able to take nice breaks at one of the following cabins along the groomed ski tracks. First out is Hakkesetstølen, a very lovely place where you also could park your car. Hakkesetstølen has been in the family for severale generations now. You can order something to eat or stay overnight. After a while you will come to Grønebakken, only open in Norwegian holidays and de weekends during wintertime. This cabin is runed by the local Red Cross. Here you can get something to eat and drink while sitting in the warm sun.
If you want to do this tour over two days we reccomend you to stay overnight at Tuva Turistcabin. You will noticed the diffrence in landscape, leaving Hallingdal and Geilo behind and be welcome by the open space of the Hardangervidda. At Tuva it is almost manditory to try the famous Tuva-waffle!
From Grønebakken you will go down to the little cabin place called Ustaoset. From here the climb towards Hallingskarvet looks enoreous, but take it ieasy and you will manage. The last break is at Prestholtseter. Also a family runed mountaincafe, where you can order something to eat and drink.
