Download map and more information about the hike

Falkeriset is a low ridge west of Møsvatn, and has been named after the falcon hunting, which was an important industry here until the 1700s. 

Dutch falconers lived in stone huts below the ridge and hunted the world's largest falcon - the Gyrfalcon. The birds were sold to the princes and kings in Europe, and were trained to catch such as pheasant.

Today you can see the remains of the stone huts under the ridge, and northwest of the summit are the catching site. Gyrfalcon, dwarf falcons and kestrels still nest in the mountain areas around Falkenuten.

An intermediate tour suited for everyone, if able to walk stairs, stunning mountain scenery with panoramic views of the Hardangervidda, Gaustatoppen and Møsstrond. Parts of the tour go on damp marshes, remember waterproof shoes.

From the center of Rauland drive 4 km along Rv 362 in the direction of Haukeligrend take a right towards Kromviki and after 10.5 km you will see a small car park on your right, park here. On the left hand of the road, there is an info board and map of Falkenuten and the surrounding area.

Follow the path to Falkenuten, it is an easy climb up to the summit, but a climb, there are several trails running parallel towards the top. At the summit you can enjoy a picnic with a breathtaking panoramic view in all directions as far as the eye can see. From Falkenuten or the summit, you can follow small paths further into the mountain, but be aware, they are poorly marked.
Or turn around here and walk the same path back and enjoy the sight of Gaustatoppen. The trip to the summit is 3 km long round trip and takes an hour.
