Hovden is located some 120 miles (193 kilometers) from Oslo, the capital of Norway, and about 70 miles (113 kilometers) from Stavanger.
Of course, visiting just one place, no matter how popular, usually only offers you a limited view into the wider natural and cultural makeup of a region. So be sure to set aside enough time to enjoy Oslo - Southern Norway's other natural and man-made attractions. You'll find Nesflaten, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the east, and Dalen 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the west.
If you are after things to do inside, it's hard to go past Oslo - Southern Norway's nature museums, palaces and theaters. These are ideal places to learn about the region's culture and perhaps pick up a souvenir or two. If you're in the hunt for things to do that won't wreak havoc on the budget, take a tour of Oslo - Southern Norway's numerous outdoor attractions such as open-air exhibits, gardens and open-air museums.
