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.
