Lunner – cross-country skiing at Mylla
Lunner municipality is home to the stunning Mylla, a spectacular cabin and outdoor area. As you explore its fantastic network of trails, you may well come across famous politicians and royals among those out enjoying the snow.
Parking and starting point for the trail network are on the eastern side of Mylla, and the car park is called “Myllsdammen”. There is a parking fee payable via Youpark when you leave.
Recommended trails and trail status reports
The Myllsdammen gateway offers access to trails stretching across the entire Nordmarka. Many opt for the ski-bus service to Mylla and skiing back to Oslo, but the trails also stretch to Tverrsjøstallen in Jevnaker, Ringkollen in Ringerike, and all the way to the old forest at Krokskogen. For a short – but absolutely stunning – trip, we recommend "Den lille Myllarunden".

Thorbjørnrud Hotell enjoys a beautiful setting by Randsfjorden in Jevnaker, and offers waxing facilities as part of a collaboration agreement with Skiforeningen. The hotel also collaborates with Flyt, which is a new floating sauna on Randsfjorden.

Lushaugtårnet at Lygna – summer hike
Trip from Lygnasæter to Lushaugtårnet via Lushaughytta.
A spectacular hike to Lushaugtårnet, a multi-platform observation tower with a 360-degree panorama. The 5 km hike to the tower takes approx. 1.5 hours, and you follow the same route back.
Drive to Lygnasæter Hotel and park up. Follow the road until you reach Jotunheimstien. Its starting point is by the stables behind Lygnasæter Hotel. Continue south along the tractor track on the eastern side of the cabin area for approx. 2 km to Finnskjeggholen. Then follow the trail south through forest terrain and across walkways and open landscape, to the foot of Vesle Lushaugen. Continue east to the Lushaughytta cabin, and then up the steep hillside to Lushaugen og Lushaugtårnet. The tower stands 15 metres high, and – on a clear day – offers stunning views of Eastern Norway.
If you prefer a round-trip, there is an alternative route described at UT’s webpage.
Good footwear is recommended as some areas can be wet and muddy.
Visit Lygnasæter Hotel and its Kro for a bite to eat, or relax in the hotel’s beautiful surroundings.
