Kiting is an experience that is guaranteed to make the butterflies in your stomach flutter. Stand on a snowboard or a pair of skis and use the wind as your engine. Bergsjøstølen is actually one of the leading places for kiting. They offer kite rentals as well as several courses.

Enjoy the mountains

Ål and its surroundings are a paradise for those who love mountain skiing. Ål offers white peaks and tranquil forests, making winter even more magical. It's great to explore the mountains around Reineskarvet and Lauvdalsbrea, but be prepared for a long hike.

You can also embark on a snowshoeing trip. Pack a bag with warm clothes, a thermos, and some snacks, and you can enjoy nature for hours.


We have a dedicated sledging hill at Topcamp Hallingdal where children can play for hours. However, if you're looking for more speed and excitement, Skarslia Ski and Sledging Center is just a short drive away. You can use a sled or rent a toboggan and race down two of Norway's longest sledging hills!
