About

A child-friendly hike in beautiful mountain surroundings with a 360 degree panoramic view of Hardangervidda, Gaustatoppen, Møsstrond and Rauland. Sherpas from Nepal have built the beautiful stone steps up to the observation point. Falkeriset is named after the falcon hunt in the area. The hike is suitable for ages 2 to 90.  

The Hike
The hike starts at the stone steps at the parking area at Kromvikvegen. The stone steps makes it easy to follow the trail. It is a smooth, gentle incline the entire way through the mountain birch wood and up to the observation point on the mountain. Please do not stray from the steps, as wear and tear causes new, muddy paths to form.

How to get to Falkeriset
From the centre of Rauland: Follow the rv 362 in the direction of Haukeli. After 4 km, take the right-hand exit towards Kromviki. Follow the gravel track named Kromvikvegen for 11 km to a parking area on the left-hand side where the trail begins. The starting point is marked with an information board and a stone staircase. Free parking. 

It is closed during the winter: Kromvikvegen opens 1st June until first snow in October/November.

Grazing sheep = dogs on leads
Remember to keep your dog on a lead 1st April - 20th August. 

Falkeriset is grazing land for sheep. It is important to keep dogs on a lead to avoid that little lambs are being chased and exhausted. (Lambs and mothers may lose each other).

The grouse hunting season on Falkeriset is from 10th September to 29th February. Loose dogs hamper the shoot. 

Facts
