With the Halnekongen as transport, you get access to many great hikes in the national park, but it is also possible to use the boat for a great round trip on the plateau.
The boat offers transport from the Halne Fjellstugu, located by the RV7 highway, to the stops at Skaupa and Sleipa. The popular boat route has been in operation since 1954, when nothing was yet built at Sleipa. Feel free to also stop by the Halne Fjellstugu, where they can tell you about great hiking routes with the Halnekongen as starting point, or for a wonderful lunch!

Kayaking in Arctic Waters

Kayaking at the Finsevann lake takes place in steady, double kayaks, with a focus on security and learning. The guides on the tour will tell you the exciting story of the area from the stone age hunting culture, settlements, and the importance of the wild reindeer, to the building of the Bergen rail line.
