About Tussheim

Tussheim is a great hiking tour and viewpoint of Lesja.

Getting there

Leave the E136 in the central of Lesja. Parking available on the north side of the E136. Walk under the railway underpass and follow the signs to Tussheim. 

Trail description

At Tussheim, 3,2 km above the center of Lesja, there is a big cairn. It's a slight ascent up to Tussheim, but the hike fits most people. The path merges with Skamsdalsdroget. Above the treeline you can either continue to Dalsida or turn right and follow the signs/path to Tussheim. Great viewpoint!
