About Lauvdalsbrea


Hike that gives you a breath of mountain air. Panoramic view of the Hallingdal mountains. At the top you are rewarded with a magnificent view where you see among other Reineskarvet and Hallingskarvet. In good weather you can even see Gaustadtoppen in Telemark.

The hike up to Lauvdalsbrea (1597 masl) is altogether 7 km and you walk the same route up and down.
Follow the path from the road up to the first plateau. Here the path will partially be gone but it's easy to follow the cairns in the terrain further to the top.
It is somewhat steep and some easy climbing in the steepest area. Towards the end you walk on stones until you reach the top.

The hike can be combined with fishing in the pond by the parking lot. Fishing permit required.
