This is our most popular winterhiking/ski-tour. We start easy with 2-3 hours skitour from the road in Hunnedalen to the mountain huit Sandvatn. Day two, we are heading against Langavatn, which is near by the famous Kjerag. Day three, we ended up in the Lysefjord. A high speed vessel will bring us back to Lauvik. From the pier at Lauvik a cab will pick us up and give us a lift back to Stavanger.
The guide will meet you outside the Stavanger touristinformation at 8 am and bring you up to the starting point in Hunnedal. From the road we go upwards. Up and up, but not so steep. Dont start with a lot of clothes, you will be warm. When we reach the top, it is a little up and down until we arrive the cabin Sandvatn. Forget about electricity and mobile coverage, you are in the mountain now.
Day two starts very easy. We are crossing some frozen water on our way to the mountain huit Langevatn. The terrain is beautiful. We usually have plenty of time when arriving Langavatn. So if you want, the guide will take you to a summit near by. But of course, you can also rest in the cabin, read a book, drink coffee or tea, or just talk to other people on their adventure.
Depend of our skiing skills, we may start early this day. We have to catch the high speed vessel from Lysebotn at 3.30 pm, so we haven`t so much time, but we will manage it. From the mountain huit Langevatn we start easy. After 2 hours we will have some lunch at the restaurant Øygardsstøl, which will be winterclosed at this time. Now we have starts the downhill, oh yes.
Depend of the snowcondition, are we able to skiing whole the way to the tunell? We hope so. After passing the tunell, there will be 30 minutes walking at asphalt to the pier in Lysebotn.
Onboard in the high speed vessel to Lauvik, relax, you have done it. Crossing the mountain, done advanced downhill skiing, spend two night in a mountain huit, you are an expedition member.
