Nos Cross-Country Ski Tour in Hovden

Nos is one of the best known - and most spectacular cross-country ski trips in the Hovden area.  It starts by hitching a lift up the chair-lift of the alpine skiing centre, then 6 or 7 kilometres across the tops before running back down into Hovden.
Hovden is in upper Setesdal, part of the county of Aust Agder, in Norway.

you have to take the ups ... In good weather - around Easter, for instance - this trip is a great family day out.  In bad weather it will be a challenge for good skiers - or closed.
You can take pulks up on the chair lift, in case you have small children with you.
From here you could ski for weeks, from hytte to hytte.
