From Reinunga, you have easy access to a number of excellent skiing runs. The location near the Storeskavlen glacier, between the weather systems of the west and the east, produces fantastic powder snow that lends itself perfectly for back-country skiing adventures. When the conditions are right you can ski down from 1700m to Flåm (sea level) and ride the train back up to the hytte at 774m :)
Ski touring in the mountains is lots of fun but can be dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Make sure you have the right equipment and knowledge !.
You can check the avalanche forecast here.
Bring your bike or rent one from the nearby town and cycle the famous Rallarvegen "the navvy road" a road built for the construction of the railway line. It starts at the Hardangervidda plateau, runs past the Hardangerjøkulen glacier and goes down to the fjord in Flåm.
Take a stroll around the lake or walk along the famous Rallarvegen. We guaranty some stunning views. The area lies in the western part of Skarvheimen, where the western and eastern weather systems meet. This provides the area with snow from both weather systems, and usually keeps snow conditions excellent throughout the winter. Slightly east of Reinunga lies the Storeskavlen glacier, which keeps the snow cool and stable.
Only 800 meters from your doorstep starts the longest zip line in the Nordic countries. Try ziping down the 1381 meter line at near 100km/h with incredible views down the Flåmsdalen valley !
The line ends at Rallarrosa Mountain Farm where you can have refreshments and awesome organic and local mountain cheese :)
If you like riding the wind and the snow together then look no further. Two realy great places to enjoy snowkiting are just around the corner (25min and 45min train rides).
Reinunga eco-hytta lies within Aurland municipality, Its slogan is "the natural choice". Aurland has a lively cultural heritage where farmers cultivate steep mountainsides and make the world’s best goat’s cheese. Aurland is all about staying organic !
In 2005, the Nærøyfjord here in Aurland was inscribed on the World Heritage List.
The Aurlandsdalen Valley has been the main road between eastern and western Norway - an important route for trade and travel.
Aurland also has a rich viking age heritage. The area has several sites of viking age settlement, burials where important archaeological artefacts have been recovered.
Once the ice has set on the lake, just 80 meters from the cabin, the ice fishing season can start. Don't forget the hot chocolate in the thermos !
Hardangerjøkulen glacier is just a short train ride away.
The glacier is the 6th largest on the mainland in Norway. Glacier hikes often take place in the majestic icefall Blåisen "the blue ice" from July to September. Guided tours of the glacier can be arranged.
Winter waymarking is done for the principal skiing season at Easter, although some routes are waymarked as early as February. In all, each year, some 7000 km of skiing tracks are waymarked in Norway.
Get the map of all the tracks here.
The nearest lake is just 80 meters away. Remember to bring your fishing rods, bait and card with you.
Although Myrdal has less northern lights than northern Norway, Months from September to March often prove to give us one or two nights of possible Aurora spotting. For a better chance of spotting them come during the new moon.
