In the small village of Hemsedal you are greeted by alpine mountain surroundings and some of Norway’s best skiing and fly-fishing.
Stable snow conditions and plenty of ski lifts and slopes have made Hemsedal, an alpine ski resort in the mountains halfway between Oslo and Bergen, one of the largest and most popular places for winter holidays in Norway. Travelling to Hemsedal is easy and there are several options for getting here and around.
Hemsedal Skisenter has wide and long pistes, several terrain parks and designated areas for children, whilst neighbouring Solheisen is a smaller ski area in the nearby Grøndalen Valley. The two areas provide varied terrain to suit the whole family.
The resort as a whole also offers excellent off-piste and cross-country skiing conditions, as well as a vast repertoire of non-skiing activities like dog sledding, snowshoeing, ice climbing and horse sleigh riding. And there is no lack of places to stay, from grand hotels to comfortable cottages, cabins and chalets.
And there are plenty of things to do here when the snow is gone, too. The Hemsila river offers top-notch opportunities for fly-fishing. The lush and varied nature surroundings provide an ideal base for activities including hiking, climbing, horseback riding and cycling.
Hemsedal is also an excellent starting point for mountain biking. At Hemsedal Skisenter you can take your bike on a chair lift up to 1,100 metres and try the downhill park, or cycle further into the mountains. The many graded and signed routes run through a scenery of majestic mountains and vigorous valleys.
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, with a main fall of 155 metres.
Hemsedal village has a range of accommodation options, restaurants, cafes, bars and shops. After a day in the slopes you can join the après-ski or dance to the hottest DJ’s at one of Hemsedal’s nightclubs.
The slopes in Hemsedal range from very easy green runs to difficult black ones, and if you like to venture off the slopes, the area has great off-piste skiing and fun après-ski, as well as a range of other winter activities to choose from.
