The tour up to Gaustatoppen

Gaustabanen will be open every day from week 7 - week 42. Please notice that Gaustabanen may close in short notice due to weather conditions. 

You can also get up to the summit on you own. Best route is to go up by Svineroi Seter (mountain farm).

The trip takes approximately 2.5 hours to the top.

The freeride down

A route called Langefonn is marked and designated as safe in terms of avalanches. Please note, however, that all traffic is at your own risk!
Tougher downhills are along the ridge north from the tower. There are seven runs eastward with varying degrees of difficulty and a mean decrease of less than 40 degrees.


We cannot stress it enough, that all traffic to the summit is at your own risk .

Gaustatoppen without skis

Winter at Gaustatoppen can be a special experience for more than the freeriders. Take Gaustabanen to the top and enjoy a waffle in the sun in 1800 meters altitude. On a clear day the view is fabulous.

Gaustatoppen Tourist Cabin is open when Gaustabanen runs.


The road from Svineroi to Tuddal is closed in winter , so it is best to park your car at Svineroi.  You can also take the “Fjellbussen” that runs until 5 times a day between Rjukan and Destination Gausta.
