Halnefjordhytta is located on the south-west shore of Halnefjorden and it is possible to rent. The cabin’s location on the shore of Halnefjorden with the river Skaupa flowing right next to it is unique. Here you live in the heart of Hardangervidda and have excellent opportunities for hiking, swimming, boat trips, fishing, and grouse hunting in the autumn. The terrain around the cabin is incredibly beautiful and easy to walk in.
Halne Fjellstugu is the home of the boat Halnekongen. The popular boat route has been operating since 1954, when the dam at Sleipa was built. Take the boat across the Halnefjord as the start of a hiking trip, or as a round trip. Or how about renting one or more nights at Halnefjordhytta? Halnekongen goes from Halne Fjellstugu to Skaupa/Sleipa. The crossing takes around 40 minutes and can take 37 passengers. It is not necessary to pre-order tickets during the months when Halnekongen has a regular time schedule.
