Visit the iconic Gaustatoppen
Gaustatoppen is one of Norway's most beautiful and most accessible mountains. At an altitude of 1883 metres, it is fantastic to visit all year round and is a popular destination for hikers and skiers. Do not miss Gaustabanen, the in-mountain cable car that goes all the way to the top!
Gaustabanen is a two-part train journey inside Gaustatoppen that takes you almost to the summit. The railway starts at an elevation of 1150 meters with a small train that takes you 850 meters into the mountain. Then, you transfer to the cable car, which ascends 1080 meters at a 39-degree incline to the summit station at an elevation of 1800 meters. From the summit station, you can walk a 30-meter outdoor stone staircase to Gaustatoppen Turisthytte, which offers dining and accommodation options. If you continue up the stone staircase to the plateau near the radio tower and move along the ridge, you will eventually reach an elevation of 1883 meters above sea level, which is the highest point of Gaustatoppen. The final section is rugged and very steep on both sides. All travel is at your own risk.
Skiing from Gaustatoppen
In both Winter and Spring, Gausta offers world-class skiing. Here there is something for all levels: the marked trail down Langefonn suits the vast majority, while the steep chutes can entice advanced skiers. These trails are off-piste and are not groomed. You ski and ride them at your own risk. Skiing from Gaustatoppen requires the right knowledge, experience, and equipment, in addition to being aware of weather conditions and avalanche warnings before venturing out into the terrain.
