Høyfjellssenteret-Fjellroa-Nordre Kanken


Entjønnrunden is a shorter alternative to Kvalptjønnhøgda. Stunning Alpine scenery is guaranteed. The route runs on paths and is occasionally stony. We recommend good walking shoes. Length: 7.3 km Grade: Red


Skurufjellet is a popular hike in Trysilfjellet, and for good reason. This is where you really get the high mountain feeling! You can start Skurufjellrunden from either Høyfjellssenteret or Lågfjellet. The route goes to the top of Skurufjellet, before continuing as a circuit via Skurufjelltjønna and Paradisbukta, and then on a fine trail back to Fageråsen. Note that the stretch from Skurufjelltjønna to Paradisbukta is steep. We recommend good walking shoes. Length: 4.4 km


A fine route on Lågfjellet. The trail goes over rocks and on a fine mountain trail. The feeling of the mountains is all there, even though the route does not go to a peak. A couple of stony stretches mean it's blue-marked. 

Stolpejakten in Fageråsen

Stolpejakt in English means a hunt for posts. These posts are located out in the open, and their GPS coordinates are entered on a map. We recommend downloading the Stolpejakten app, giving an overview of all the recorded posts in Norway on an accurate map. When you find one, use the app to scan in the QR code on its side. 

There are 20 posts in Fageråsen with different degrees of difficulty located in varying terrain, over a wide area. They are colour-graded as green, blue, red and black, with green as the easiest and black as the hardest. 

Points are collected according to post colour. Posts above an altitude of 900 m have achieved extra status, and in Fageråsen, no fewer than 16 out of the 20 are over that altitude. 

During your hunt, can also check in on three top Trysil routes: Trysilfjellet 1132, Skurufjellet and the new top route Kvalptjønnhøgda. 

A printed map can be obtained in reception in Fageråsen, and the library at Innbygda.
