About Svartfjellet

If you want a great view inland to Kvamsfjellet and Rondane, Svartfjellet is a great destination for most people.

Getting there

Go from Lundeshop and inwards Flaksjølivegen to a sign that shows Svartfjellet on the left.

Trail description

From Flaksjølivegen, continue on the road with bridge over Friska to the foot of Svartfjellet. Just before the site, follow the path along the side of the mountain all the way to the top (1,154 meters above sea level).

The tour takes you in old farmland landscapes on good trails and roads. The ascent to Svartfjellet may feel a bit airy for some, but the view from the top inwards towards Rondane should be experienced. The big water you see from the vantage point is Lake Flaksjø, where you can rent canoes, rowing boats and fishing.

After the top hike you can choose to walk up the trail to Dynjefjell, or continue around Flaksjøen, but then you have to find the tour description for these trips.

If you now want to go home, you choose to walk the same path back to the seter road and follow this back to the Lundes..


If you like to take a boat trip, you can rent boats at the Lundeshop..

Fishing license for all water on Venabygdsfjellet, you can buy at Lundes.

Leash for dogs is valid from 1 April to 15 October on Venabygdsfjellet
