Easy powder access

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.

Find the perfect line

Think safety when choosing a line down the mountain. Our suggestions are just recommendations. Read the terrain carefully, and consider the current snow and weather conditions. You are responsible for your own safety.

Good planning is half the battle

Before setting out you should gather information about snow and weather conditions. Local tourist information offices, ski schools and ski rentals will help you. For the Hovden area, map sheets describing the various randonee routes have been prepared, and these are available at the tourist information office.
