Finse, Finse

#2 of 10 in Things to do in Ulvik Municipality
Get away from the tourist crowds at Finse, a small mountain village popular for hiking or biking. The area offers plenty of outdoor opportunities, such as walks along the lake or the dam surrounded by forests and hills. Winter snows beckon visitors for cross-country skiing, sail skiing, expedition training, and Red Cross training. Film buffs may appreciate the fact that several scenes from "Star Wars Episode V" were once shot outside of the town, and all of the "Ice Planet of Hoth" scenes. Getting here is easy from Finse Station, a stop on the Bergensbanen railway line.
