Cross country skiing | Nordfjordeid
Harpefossen Ski Resort is situated in the Hjelmeland valley, 10 KM from the center of Eid in Sogn og Fjordane county. Harpefossen is the largest, most complete resort in the county offering slopes of some 550 metres starting at 300 m.a.s.l.
Harpefossen’s varied terrain is well known nationally, and our geographical position ensures regular powder snowfall throughout the season. There are 7 ski lifts, 13 well-groomed trails, 15 km of pathways for cross country and a trail network running through 5 idyllic mountain summer farms. A separate biathlon arena forms part of the cross country trails, and both resorts and the cross-country trails are floodlit ensuring good evening visibility. We also offer lessons in downhill skiing, Telemark skiing and snowboarding on request.
Harpefossen is found along the old postal route between Nordfjord and Sunnmøre.
In winter the ski lift takes you up into breathtaking mountains bordering Sunnmøre. From the top of the ski lift you have the choice of multiple slopes of varying levels of ease or to hike further into the mountains.
In summer time we recommend following the old post route that winds its way through pretty seasonal farms and lakes. The old postal route joins the E 39 in Bjørkedalen, between Nordfjordeid and the Volda-bound ferry at Folkestad.
