Kite trip to norway
Hardangervidda is a mountain plateau right in the middle of the way from Oslo to Bergen in Norway. Alongside the road we can choose from various spots suitable for both beginners and advanced snowkiters according to the weather, wind and other conditions. There are no trees, no obstacles, just frozen lakes, small hills covered with snow and great wind on the area of hundreds of square kilometers – just the perfect playground which you will never get bored of.
FEBRUARY: 11.2. - 18.2., 18.2. - 25.2., 25.2. - 4.3.
MARCH: 4.3.-11.3., 11.3. - 18.3., 18.3. - 25.3., 25.3. - 1.4.
where we stay
Ustaoset is a small village with supermarket, train station and cafe about 15 minutes far from the closest spot at Hardangervidda. It also offers an option to go snowkiting right in front of our windows on the lake or above Ustaoset below the table mountain of Hallingskarvet. As the road to Hardangervidda may be closed when the wind or snowfall is too strong, we are happy to have more options for not to miss the day. Both in February and March we will stay in brand new cabin in Solheim resort near Ustaoset. If you want to come with your family or bigger group we can book for you your private apartment in the apartment resort in Ustaoset. All apartments as well as cabin are equipped with kitchen and private bathroom, some are for 2/3 people, some for up to 6 persons. Solheim cabin is cozy Norwegian cabin with two floors, two living rooms, 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and sauna.
where we snowkite
There are so many options for snowkiting near Ustaoset. Every day we choose the best possible spot for your kite session or kite trips according to the forecast, visibility, wind and other conditions. Usually we drive with our van equipped with heating up to Hardangerdvidda. Alongside the road, which has around 30 kilometers are many parking places with various conditions. If the road is closed we have the option to go riding to the lake right in Ustaoset, bellow the table mountain on the other site of Ustaoset or other places in the valley. After spending 8 winters and one summer in the area, it is literally one of our three homes - we know there almost every rock.
what else can we do
Ustaoset has perfect location and therefore offers quite some other activities either in the evening or if the conditions are that bad that it is really not chance to go snowkiting anywhere (which is actually very rare...). There are cross country ski trails starting right in Ustaoset, you can go for ski alpineering tour bellow the table mountain or just a small walk for a coffee and Norwegian waffle at Cafe Presttun. About 10 minutes by car is Geilo, small ski center village where you can find empty slopes with perfect conditions, snowparks, flat ski trail for cross country skiing, shops, restaurants, spa with swimming pools and saunas. In Dagali about an hour far from us is another small family ski center where you can enjoy the longest trail for sleddging in Norway. We can offer car rental for you.
