About Haldammen–Gravberget–Bråten

This route is stage 11 of the full Finnskogleden hike. Stage 12 is from Bråten to Håberget.

Trail description

From Haldammen follow the trail to Gravberget. Then hike up to Øvre Berget farm to find the last view of the village before entering the forest and heading north to Bråten. This area is populated by elk and cranes.

A couple of kilometers past Furuberget is a turn off to Gjestgiveriet, a log cabin from World War II, cleverly hidden in the woods and with a dramatic history. Both inside and outside the cabin are drop containers from the days of war. The path to the cabin is marked and just 1 km west of the main trail. There are simple beds for 5–6 people, but no mattresses.

Back on the Finnskogleden trail there is only 5 km to the settlement of Bråten at the border.


  • Drinking water is available from lakes and creeks along the trail

Where to stay

There is an open residential hall in the village of Bråten.
