From Joker Fjellbu (convenience store) in Tisleidalen, follow Tisleivegen to Fløten. Make a right turn at Fløtenkrysset (intersection) and follow the farm road over the summit of Fløtenhovda at 965 m.a.s.l. with a far and wide view. At the next road crossing, turn right towards Gauklia and Brattåsen. At Brattåsen, there is a small picnic area with a great view towards the mountains in Hemsedal, including the prominent Skogshorn. From there, turn left and let the route take you downhill to the idyllic farm area of Tyrisholt. Continue to Langestølen. Here at the small convenient store and café you can stop for a light meal, before continuing towards Furuset and back to the starting point in Tisleidalen.
