Plan your trip to Hemsedal

Winter in Hemsedal

Norway's best ski resort, world-class fly-fishing, and outdoor activities for the whole family – all year round. Welcome to the Scandinavian alps!

Stable snow conditions and two fantastic ski resorts have made Hemsedal one of the largest and most popular places for winter holidays in Norway. The alpine village in Hallingdal, midway between Oslo and Bergen, also offers excellent off-piste and cross-country skiing, as well as non-skiing activities like dog sledging, snowshoeing, ice climbing, and horse-sleighing.

The rest of the year, the lush and varied nature is ideal for hiking, climbing, horseback riding, cycling – and mountain biking. Or why not try mountain carting or river snorkelling?

If you enjoy fishing, you have 18 lakes and 4 rivers to choose from. Hemsila is one of the world’s best rivers for fly-fishing.

Rjukandefossen, one of many impressive waterfalls in the area, is a powerful two-part waterfall, falling 18 metres through a narrow gulley. Nearby Hydnefossen is one of the highest waterfalls in Norway.

Hemsedal has a range of accommodation options, from high-end hotels to cabins and summer mountain farms. The many restaurants, cafes and bars have menus to fit the whole family, as well as tasty local food.

Hemsedal is certified as a Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is completely sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism.
