Nature adventures with Høve Støtt

Høve Støtt offers ice climbing, snowshoeing, ice fishing and kick-sledding in wild nature. They can also take you to the Ice Music Festival in Geilo.

Høve Støtt is located in the mountain town of Geilo, about halfway between Oslo and Bergen.

Activities on offer

Høve Støtt offers trips with kick-sledges, which is a popular means of transportation in Norway during winter. You can move at about 15 to 20 kilometres per hour. There are other organised trips with snowshoes. Perhaps you will see a fox, a grouse or a snow mouse. There are trips in all kinds of terrain, from great white plains to deep riverbeds. Adrenalin seekers can spend the day climbing frozen waterfalls. There are alternative routes depending on the season and the ice conditions. Reindeer safaris are available as well.

A different cultural experience is the annual ice music festival, at the first full moon every year. All instruments are made of ice. The festival is an ovation to nature, and an ovation to one of world’s most important resources – water.

Rv. 7 over the Hardangervidda mountain plateau and along the Hardangerfjord is a national tourist route. On the Bergen Railway you travel in comfort and get to Geilo in three hours and 30 minutes from Oslo or Bergen.
