About Raudalen

The Raudalen loop is a great cross-country trip for the whole family. The 13 km tour will take you over a friendly terrain for an exciting adventure. 

Getting there

Enter Beitostølen on County Road 51 and park in the parking lot near the ski lift in the center of town. 

Trail description

The loop starts at the top of the alpine hill, so either take the chairlift to the top, or walk up the side. Start the adventure on “Blue 1”, underneath “Kanusehøgdene”. Turn left here and follow the trail for about 800 meters until you reach “Red 1”. Follow “Red 1” for the entire loop. You will reach a few crossings during the loop but be sure to stay on “Red 1” until you return to the alpine hill area where you will be on “Blue 1”.
