In winter you can enjoy the free and fun sledge slope at the top of Mt. Hoven for an adrenalin rush. Bring your own equipment or rent a sledge from Loen Active. Remember that a helmet is required. Sledging season is usually from December to April, depending on the snow conditions.
After spending time in the snow, enjoy the view from Hoven Restaurant with something to eat and drink before returning to the lowland with Loen Skylift.
