Description

Four of the summits surrounding Hovden are particularly well suited for trips with children. These routes are marked blue, and all of them are signposted from the centre of Hovden. If you have been to one or more of those summits, you can get a diploma at the tourist office. On each summit you'll find a guest book, in which we hope you will write a greeting. A map with information about the names of the surrounding mountains is provided on a board. The four summits: Otrosåsen, 858 m.a.s.l. Hartevassnuten, 1068 m.a.s.l. Hovdenuten, 1119 m.a.s.l. Nos, 1209 m.a.s.l.
