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.

Take the train to Finse

Finse is located along the railroad between Bergen and Oslo. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the train station to Finsehytta. It is not possible to drive by car or bus. If you are travelling by car you can park your car in Geilo (coming from east) or Voss (coming from west). The train station in Finse is not staffed, so you must buy train tickets online or onboard the train.

17th of May

In Finse we have a special celebration of the Norwegian independence day. National dresses (bunad), good food, good mood, and a big group of people skiing to the top of the glacier. Finsehytta is open only for reservations this weekend, 16-21st of May.  


The history of Finse is closely connected to the railroad and Rallarvegen. In summer season the Rallar-Museum is open for those who wish to learn more. A short summary of the history of Finsehytta and Finse you can find here
