Where you’ll be

Tinn, Telemark, Norway

Gaustablikk ski resort is known to be snow proof and to open early every year. Over the past few years, the area has developed into a modern ski resort with offers for the whole family. The ski centre now has 32 slopes and 12 lifts including 2 express chair lifts. The maximum descent is 3.8 km and the maximum difference in altitude is 550 metres. For snowboarding and off pistes, the area around Gaustatoppen is recognized as a fantastic and extremely challenging terrain. The Gausta track now transports visitors all the way to the top of the Gausta peak, and from the top it is possible to stand down several different gutters with varying degrees of difficulty, and not least to enjoy the view on the way down.

As a complete ski destination, Gaustatoppen and Gaustablikk also offer very good cross-country skiing conditions. The area has about 90 km of prepared cross-country skis, spread over 17 trails spanning all levels of difficulty from a light beginner's run of 1 km to a really high mountain trip of 23 km. There are many possibilities to combine between the slopes and shape their own trip. The slopes are well marked, and about 13 km of them have also been rolled up with skating tracks. The running company in Gaustatoppen prepares all the trails every day throughout the season as long as weather conditions permit, and strives for high quality preparation.

Gaustatoppen, which many believe is Norway's most beautiful mountain, projects over Rjukan with its 1883 meters above sea level. It is about 1,600 meters from the valley floor and up to the top. Every year, about 30,000 people take the trip up to Gaustatoppen to enjoy spectacular views. In the clear, you can look east to the border with Sweden and south to the coast. The view shows over one sixth of Norway. Every day during Easter (and during the summer season) you can buy coffee, waffles and food in the Tourist Board's old stone cabin on top. Gaustatoppen Tourist cottage was built as early as 1893 from the mountain's own natural stone.
Summer and autumn

There are varied hiking and cycling terrain with opportunities to fish, row or paddle down on Kvitåvatn or swim in fresh mountain water. Krossobanen is Northern Europe's first totaus track from 1926 and is located only about 20 km from the Gausta area along the road through Rjukan. On top of the course at Gvepseborg you will find the gateway to Hardangervidda, the popular sunpath and some of the first cabins of the Norwegian Tourist Board. It's also important to mention that the UNESCO World Heritage site recently listed Rjukan Industrial History and Vemork Power Station, and plenty of history and culture to familiarize yourself with through the nearby museums and information boards.

Offers Down the road you'll find well-established Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell, and just before that you'll find popular The Happy Sportsman Guesthouse with après-ski and serving. At Gaustablikk Ski Center there is also après ski and restaurant, ski rental and Sport1 shop as well as the small grocery store Bag&Bag. Below Gaustatoppen Nature Park on the other side of Kvitåvatn and the Alpine resort is the Building, which offers food, après-ski and keys from Gaustabooking.

It takes about 15 minutes to drive down to Rjukan, where there are several grocery stores such as Spar, Kiwi and Coop, Wine Monopoly, very popular Rjukan Baths, restaurants and shops. Gvepseborg café & restaurant, to which the historic Krossobanen takes you from Rjukan, is definitely worth a visit.

Jeg og min mann eier en hytte på Gaustablikk som vi leier ut innimellom. Vi har tre jenter på 8, 6 og 2 år så hytta er barnevennlig.
