Hiking at our destinations

Hiking with the whole family

At our destinations, you will find hiking trails that are easy enough to hike with younger children or tougher hikes that will really challenge for your thigh muscles. The hiking trails are well marked with red crosses and there are both rest houses and shelters along the way. Run, hike or stroll around the mountain between "fika" breaks – the pace and destination are entirely up to you.

Hiking trails for everyone

When you take the lift up to the summit of the mountain, a world of hiking trails opens up to suit all types of hiking, regardless of your previous hiking experience. Buy a single ticket for the lift, online or in the SkiStar app, to get up the mountain quickly and easily and start your hike.

Our top five tips for mountain hiking

  1. Plan your hike: Find out as much as you can about the trail you want to hike - how long it is, what the terrain looks like, whether it passes places to eat or shop on the way. The more you know about the trail, the better you can prepare and pack for your hike.
  2. Have the right equipment: The equipment you need depends on the type of hike you're planning to do, but you can never go wrong with a pair of proper hiking boots, windproof and waterproof clothing, as well as a backpack with water and something edible.
  3. Dress for unexpected weather: The weather can change quickly when hiking in the mountains, so always pack windproof and waterproof clothing, even if the sun is shining when you're about to set off.
  4. Adjust your speed: Take it easy and adapt your speed to the terrain and your physical ability. Take regular breaks to rest and don't forget to enjoy the views along the hiking trail.
  5. Respect the nature: Show consideration for the environment and wildlife by leaving minimal trails behind you.
