Children

Hiking is fun for young and old! The smallest of family members like to go on a walking trip themselves. We have many recommendations for great hiking experiences for the whole family here at WalkTelemark.

Family-friendly hiking

Time for free play, fantasy and excitement is often more important for children than to take long trips for children. Make the hikes here at WalkTelemark memorable for your children by competing who can find the first tracks of beavers or moose? Talk about the positive experiences about the trip with your children whilst viewing all the different attractions along the many hikes.

Choosing the right hike for your family

When you want to go hiking with your children, it is important to take into consideration the age, physique and motivation of the children. How accustomed a child is to hiking is also a huge factor. It may be wise to start off with an easy hike, and increase the level and length of the hikes slowly. Use the miniguides if you are unsure about the different levels of difficulty, and what they stand for.  The indication of time spent on the hikes in our miniguides is the amount of time used without taking any breaks along the way in a normal pace. Adjust your hiking experience by deciding whether the goal of the hike is for the children to have a fun time and be able to play along the hike or if you are intending to reach a certain goal.
