It is not only because the local border is shaped like a heart, but also because of the central location in the valley. Nesbyen is about 2 hours drive northwest of Oslo. Nesbyen is easily reached by train via the Bergen Railway. There are more cabins than residents in Nesbyen and there are good reasons why so many choose to spend their free time in our mountains. Hallingdalselva flows like a lifetime through our valley with refreshing and cooling water from the mountains above us. Now you have the opportunity to float down the quiet Hallingdalselva - a great fun experience for the whole family. You can also visit the wolves at Langedrag Nature Park. In the center of Nesbyen you will find one of Norway's oldest open-air museums, the Hallingdal Museum. Here you go back in time and get close to life in the valley in earlier times.
