Bergsjøområdet, Ål i Hallingdal.
There is a fantastic choice of excursions around the area at the foot of Reineskarvet. Mountain and summer trails take you through some of the most beautiful mountain areas in Norway; through summer farms and past delightful fishing waters and rivers.
The Bergsjø area has a gentle and charming mountain terrain with, for example, views of Hallingskarvet and Reineskarvet. If your starting point is Slakteplassen at Rødungstøl Høyfjellshotell you could cycle to Tvist. At this cross road you can choose between cycling to Djup/Toviken or to Hovet. Both routes follow the Stolsvass dam for long stretches. From Slakteplassen you can also follow the mountain trail and cycle to Bergsjøstølen Fjellstue and on to Hesthovdstølen. The whole area has high mountain terrain.
