The chairlift to the summit Nos has been in operation since 1968. Today, the Hovden Alpine Centre is a modern and well-adapted facility for the whole family. The children's area "Tusseland" has become an eldorado for our youngest guests; and the terrain park "Bukkerittet" is more spectacular than ever.
Hovden boasts 170 kilometres of cross-country trails which are daily groomed during the season. From sheltered trails in the forest to the open country, you are guaranteed to find your favourite! We have trails for young children and beginners, and for those of you who want to experience the wide mountain expanses. The trails are groomed for classic as well as skate skiing.
The 1250-metre terrain park at Hovden is considered one of the largest and best snowboard and freeski parks in Norway. It contains more than 30 creative and exciting elements. The smallest children have their own park in the “Tusseland” section.
Setesdal is known for its steep mountainsides, rising from the valley floor and easily accessible from the main road RV 9. In the upper part of the valley, in Valle and Bykle, several mountains are suitable for randonee skiing. Berg in Valle is the starting point for a trip that will give you a 1000-metre descent, and at Hovden you may conquer several summits in just one day.
