Get around


Hovden is situated in upper Setesdal, about 800m above sea level. The scenery here is beautiful with mountains, open country, water and birch woodland. Nature has provided perfect conditions for recreation, relaxation, and peace and quiet but also for challenges in and on the water, on land and in the air. Hovden is perhaps best known as a winter sports resort with a long winter and a stable winter climate. The winter normally starts with about 20 cm of snow sometime in November and lasts until the beginning of May.

Summer in Hovden is also wonderful. The area offers good fishing, swimming - not just at Hovden Badeland but also along the river and in lake Hartevatn, activities such as rafting, climbing and canyoning and last, but not least, the high mountains offering fantastic walking. In the summer, a new 9-hole golf course will be open. Hovden is a good starting point for walks from cabin to cabin. Close by are Sloaros and Tjørnbrotsbu cabins, which are both linked to the Norwegian Mountain Touring Association’s trail network.
