Sloaros – self service cabin
Sloaros is a DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) cabin situated between Hovden and Haukeliseter. Walking distance from Hovden is approx. 14 km.
Follow the T-marked trail that starts in the eastern part of the Hovden Alpinsenter parking area, to the self-service cabin "Sloaros" (closed in May, during the reindeer calving season). Walking time is approximately 5 hours one way. Map is required and compass is recommended. This hike will take you through a beautiful and varied mountain scenery. From Sloaros you may continue on the DNT trail network to other cabins in the region (Holmevasshytta, Bleskestadmoen and Haukeliseter). For further information, see https://www.dntsor.no/
If you want to save some time and walking distance, you may start by taking the chairlift to the summit Storenos and follow the blue-marked trail until it meets the DNT trail close to the "Krosslosskardet" pass. Apart from the skiing season, this option is available during parts of the summer and autumn.
