Mountain skiing for everybody - Wild Voss
The location for the day is at Mjølfjell Mountain Lodge, right underneath the train station Ørnaberget. There we have all nesecessary ski equipment and will prepare for the skitour. On this trip we will follow the slopes down against Mjølfjell, or go from Rallarvegen to Uppsete. The terrain is easy, the distance short and the sourroundings are beautiful. After the trip we will gather by the fire in the lodge, relax with the heath from the fire and enjoy a warm meal.
The famous Fridtjof Nansen skied in the mountains near Mjølfjell about 130 years ago. On the walls in the lodge you can see paintings from some of Nansens own polar expedition, when sitting by the fire, we will tell more about Nansens adventure trips.
Mjølfjell Mountain Lodge is also the base/home for the coffee brasserie of Voss. We taste some coffee before going back with the train.
Mjølfjell is located in Raundalen, about 35 kilometer east of Voss. Raundalen is unknown, untouched hiking area. In the bottom of the valley, runs the protected river Raundalselvi, which crawls trough cramped and trough the forets. The valley is surrounded by mountains covered with snow and dramatic and steep forests.
The hike is arranged daily on request from 3. January and until 20. April 2020.
