In the winter Hovden boasts 190 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. The Hovden Alpine Centre has slopes for every skill level, and some of them are floodlit during evening skiing.
Here are several good fishing lakes and many hiking paths in the mountains. The tours of the peaks are popular outings for families. On warm days, the Hegni recreation area is the place for swimming, fishing, biking and hiking.
The Hovden Aqualand is a paradise for children of all ages the whole year.
