This is our most popular winter hiking/ski tour. We start easy with 2-3 hours ski tour from the road in Hunnedalen to the mountain hut Sandvatn. Day two, we head towards Langavatn, near the famous Kjerag. Day three, we end up in the Lysefjord. A high speed vessel will bring us back to Lauvvik. From the pier at Lauvvik, a taxi will pick us up and give us a lift back to Stavanger.
The guide will meet you outside the Stavanger tourist information 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. Don't start with a lot of clothes, you will be warm. When we reach the top, the track both ascends and descends before arrriving the cabin Sandvatn. Forget about electricity and mobile reception - you are in the mountains now.
Day two starts very easy. We cross frozen waters on our way to the mountain hut Langevatn. The terrain is beautiful. We usually have plenty of time when arriving Langevatn. So if you want, the guide will take you to a summit nearby. 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.
Depending on your skiing skills, we may start early this day. We have to catch the high speed vessel from Lysebotn at 3.30 pm, so there is not much time to spear, but we'll manage. From the mountain hut Langevatnm we start easy. After 2 hours, we'll have some lunch at the restaurant Øygardsstøl, which will be winter closed at this time. Now we are ready to start the downhill adventure!
Depending on the snow condition, we will see if we are able to ski the entire way to the tunnel - we hope we'll make it. After passing the tunnel, there will be 30 minutes walking on asphalt roads to the pier in Lysebotn.
Onboard in the high speed vessel to Lauvvik you can relax as you have made it; you crossed the mountain, you did advanced downhill skiing, spent two nights in a mountain hut, you are now an expedition member.
