A 1,6 kilometer hike from Vemork to Vemorktoppen. At Vemork you go to the eastern end of the old power plant (now the Norwegian Industrial Workers' Museum). Here, there is a staircase between the old power plant and the entrance to the new power plant. Go up the stairs where you’ll find the path. Almost up there you come to a wooden bridge over a canal. Don't go over the bridge, but go up to the left (if you walk over the bridge you get onto the road about 300 meters from the Vemorktoppen). Start at Vemork: The Norwegian Industrial Workers' Museum has a large parking lot. From here you go over the suspension bridge and then approximately 800 meters up to the museum. Start at Vemorktoppen: Take off from Rv 37 just above the Maristite tunnel, signposted to Selstali. Follow the road a few kilometers to the power plant on Vemorktoppen. Here you’ll have plenty of room to park your car.
