You take the cable car to Gvepseborg and then you can choose a trail that suits you. We took the Solstien an amazing trail almost to the border of Hardangervidda. Panorama view and a spectakuler view of Gaustadtoppen from another angle.

As part of the Industrial World Heritage site Rjukan - Notodden this cable car was built to bring the workers up to the sun during winter. Go to the cafe to have a lincs, or even a dinner!
