The drive up into the picturesque Hjølmadalen Valley gives a sample of the scenery that awaits further into the valley which stretches to the edge of Hardangervidda National Park. From the end of the road a trail leads towards Vivelid tourist cabin before looping back over a plateau with magnificent views back down the valley. Visit for the day or spend a night at the cabin for a cosy Hardangervidda experience.
Vivelid fjellstova, located about one hour into the hike, is a full-service tourist cabin open in the summertime.
