Contact information


The Vågå district is ideal for cross country skiing. Here you find a large net of well prepared tracks at Lemonsjøen, in the Sjodalen valley and towards lake Gjende. Here you are welcome to enjoy real winter fascination in unspoilt, natural surroundings. Jotunheimen with the highest peaks north of the Alps are also close by, and invite you to exciting skiing tours to the mountain tops.
Road 51 - across Valdresflya - is closed during winter, but you can reach Maurvangen/ Gjendesheim from the north side. When the road opens in spring Valdresflya is a favourite place for skiers. Rasletind, 2.105 m.a.s.l., is a must. Another popular goal is Nautgardstind, 2.258 m.a.s.l., with Hindseter Fjellhotel as an ideal starting point.
At lodges, tourist businesses and the tourist office you can buy appropriate maps where the tracks in Vågå, Tesse, Lemonsjøen and Sjodalen are marked.
