The cross-country arena, located 2 km to the southwest of Hovden centre, is an excellent destination for outings in summer. Wonderful opportunities for swimming and fishing. In the autumn you can find berries and mushrooms.
To the top of "Otrosåsen" ( 858 m.a.s.l) the trail is marked with blue (signs/markers) from Hovden centre. Mainly flat on gravel road to "Røyrtjønn", then uphill on gravel road to the summit. The trip is also possible with bike or pram (brakes on pram recommended, due to the hills). The roundtrip takes 1 - 2 hrs and is ap. 5 km.
