About Bråten to Håberget

This route is stage 12 of the full Finnskogleden hike. 

Trail description

After leaving Bråten, the trail follows the border before continuing in Norway for the last two stages. 5 kilometers further on lies Kjølberget, the highest point of Finnskogleden, at 705 meters above sea level. Here the landscape opens with a view of Trysilfjellet. The trail then continues through a large marshy area.

Høljebakken and Nygarden appear shortly after, situated in an oasis in the middle of the forest. From here, Finnskogleden turns west towards Håberget, which is one of Finnskogen’s most well-kept farms. Make an appointment to see Trygve Hansen’s impressive woodcarving. The work itself is highly distinguished and blends old traditions with his own creative touch. 


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