Get away from the tourist crowds at Finse, a small mountain village popular for hiking or biking. The area offers plenty of outdoor opportunities, such as walks along the lake or the dam surrounded by forests and hills. Winter snows beckon visitors for cross-country skiing, sail skiing, expedition training, and Red Cross training. Film buffs may appreciate the fact that several scenes from "Star Wars Episode V" were once shot outside of the town, and all of the "Ice Planet of Hoth" scenes. Getting here is easy from Finse Station, a stop on the Bergensbanen railway line.

  • An amazing weekend with full Board on DNT Finsehytta. Bicycle trip from Finse to Flåm is just amazing and highly recommended. Nice with Flåmsbanen up to Myrdal and line further back to Finse. Mythical stop and surprise during the trip with Flåmsbanen. The food was really on a surprise Finsehytta both with the quality of raw materials preparation and quantity. The breadth and the quality of the selection at the breakfast exceeded many of the better hotels I've been to. Must be experienced.

  • We arrived from Oslo by the famous train from Oslo to Bergen. The landscapes that we cross are beautiful. We stopped at Finse and after two hours of market braving bad weather, spent a night in a tent overlooking the Lake and the glacier in the background. Beware, it can sometimes be difficult to find the trail and some passages are delicate.
