The old road.

Haukeli is a small mountain village in Vinje, Telemark. Haukeli is home to a wide range of services for visitors to the area. During winter, the Haukelifjell mountains are beautiful and wild. You will find everything from rugged mountains to sheltered birch forests, and its quite commom to meet flocks of wild reindeer. If you are after peace and quiet, there are large areas where hardly anyone goes. Haukeli is also a gateway to the skiing trails to Hardangervidda.

Get in[edit]

You can take

  • E-134 from Drammen to Haugesund/Stavanger over Haukeli and see a beautiful mountain area. If you take the old road instead for the tunnel it would be a nice experience. There is a sign where you can drive. The road is slim so drive safe.
  • From Kristiansand in the southernmost of Norway through the beautiful valley of Setesdal, follow Norwegian National Route 9.

You can find a turistinformation at Arbuvollen in Vågslid. Stop and get some information about the road alternatives.
