Anniversary trip to Gaustatoppen
We have put together a spectacular mountain trip that includes everything you would want to experience on a perfect trip to Gausta - fantastic views, good company, delicious food, excitement and memories that will last a lifetime!
The anniversary hike goes on Saturday up to Gaustatoppen, Telemark's highest mountain peak at 1883 m, from Selstali (west of Gaustatoppen) with one of our skilled guides. This is an alternative route up to the top rather than the more popular route from Stavsro. The ascent takes about 3 hours and is moderately demanding. Here you should be of average fitness,and have the appropriate footwear and clothing for the trip. Our recommendation is that the children should be at least 12 years old, but if parents believe that their younger children are capable of the walk, then responsibility lies with them.
During the trip, you will stop for a tasty packed lunch made by Gaustablikk's chefs. It is possible to buy more food and drinks at the DNT Cabin close to the top. No matter where you choose to take your lunch break, the view will be spectacular (subject to weather conditions) and unforgettable! And when you think it is not possible to experience more excitement on the trip, the descent with the Gaustabanen is equally exciting! Tickets for Gaustabanen are included.

The trip starts and ends with transport from / to Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell.
Gaustablikk - 50th anniversary!
In November 2020, it was exactly 50 years since Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell opened its doors for the first time which is worth celebrating! Gaustablikk was first built exactly where it is today with a magical view of the majestic Gaustatoppen. Had it not been for this fantastic mountain and the view of the peak from the hotel, Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell would probably not have been where it is today. It is simply a never-ending adventure!
You will stay in a pleasant superior double room which has a double and sofa bed in the Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell. Enjoy breakfast in the hotel restaurant with free access to the wellness area which has a swimming pool, jacuzzi, saunas, steam bath, relaxation area and outdoor sun deck.
Our recommendation: Book one of the popular floating saunas on Kvitåvatn, the mountain lake below the hotel after your hike. Here enjoy the temperature differences between a scorching hot sauna and fresh mountain lake water, for those who dare - all with a magical view of Gaustatoppen! Bathrobes and towels are included.
