Finsehytta is a magnificent starting point for hikes going both southwards Hardangervidda, or further into beautifull Skarvheimen. The cabin is nicely located between  Hardangerjøkulen and Hallingskarvet. With the train stopping almost at our door, Finse is the place where you can enjoy cross country skiing almost to the end of May. In summertime you can enjoy trips on Rallarvegen, guided tours on the glacier, and hike from cabin to cabin. Finse is also an excellent base for daytrips in the areas near by. 

Winter season 2020 is from 1st of March to 17th of  April(See more details about opening dates here). 17-19th of April we have open for reservations only, due to Skarverennet (ski race).

Finse is covered with snow, and a perfect place to enjoy outdoor winter activities, or sit inside the warm cabin, and enjoy waffles and hot chockolate with a spectacular view to the glacier and surrounding mountains. For more information click here
