Summers in Haukeli are really something! A lot of people take their backpacks and go trekking in the mountains to really experience the authentic nature. If you have small children with you, maybe it’s more enjoyable going for a shorter hike with marked trails in town, and finishing the day with ice cream and swimming?
Our hotels and other lodging options offers soft beds and a cozy atmosphere. It is also nice to bike around town , or go for a more challenging bike ride on the mountain trails.
At the Tourist Information, Haukeli Bue, and at Haukeliseter Fjellstue, they will give you good tips on where to go and what to do!
