About Nordre Sissihøa

Northern Sissihøa doesn’t reach as high of an elevation as its big sister Sissihø, but is an equally attractive destination. The trail starts from the winter parking lot at Lundsætra/Stølsætra. The ski trip up to Sissihøa follows the snowmobile path about 1 km toward Orkelsjøvegen. Then turn right and take the trail up to Mellomsætra. Ascending toward northwest you’ll continue into the valley between Gråhaugen and Nordre Sissihøa. Follow the valley, first toward south, then toward east, and you’ll reach the mountain side between Sissihøa and Nordre, which you’ll follow until the peak at Nordre Sissihøa. An alternative route is to start from Lo at Driva, go up towards Sissihøa and continue down toward Nordre Sissihøya. Getting there: To reach this place you’ll drive north from Oppdal town centre, exit at the sign for Fritidsparken, and from there drive along Orkelsjøvegen (tollroad).
