This spring’s fantastic skiing adventure – Top trip to Oksen

This spring’s fantastic skiing adventure – Top trip to Oksen

The best thing about spring is that there is still snow in the mountains.
Join and experience the “finest” Norway has to offer in the spring.
In fact the Hardangerfjord; surrounded by flowers and green slopes with snow on the peaks.
“EVERYTHING AT ONE TIME”

These weekends this will be arranged:
22 – 24 April 2022
13 – 15 May 2022

We travel from Halne after breakfast, drive to Hardanger and go the steep but affordable and beautiful trip to Oksen. We start at approx. 200 masl and goes the 3-5 hours up to the top 1241 masl.
The trip is suitable for all hikers. There is no requirement for great skiing skills or great fitness, but you must like to be on trips like this.
From Oksen you have a magnificent view 360 degrees to almost the whole of Hardanger, to both the fjord and the mountains.
The trail goes steeply up through spruce forest and the first stage is with skis on your shoulders. As we come up we meet on the snow and we put on our skis.
At the top we take a well-deserved lunch break and enjoy the view to the fullest. Here is a view of the Hardangerfjord, Sørfjorden, Granvinfjorden and Eidfjorden. If the weather is clear, you can also see both the glacier Folgefonna and the Hardangervidda with Hardangerjøkulen’s unique formation.
After a well-deserved break, all you have to do is put on your skis and we ski down the spectacular route we came up. The descent is both fun and unique with views of the fjord and mountains as far as the eye can see. The only negative is that you are down again in just a few minutes. Struggling us upward hour after hour, while the descent is complete at 1, 2, 3.
