Product Description

This guidebook describes 10 short treks in southern Norway, plus a handful of variants. The hut-to-hut routes, of 3-8days cover Jotunheimen, Rondane, Doverfjell, Trollheimen and Ryfylke, and an ascent of Galdhopiggen, Norway’s highest peak at 2469m, is included. Suitable for competent hikers with experience of navigation and mountain weather.

Clear route description and mapping are provided for each hike. Stages are graded according to difficulty: although all of the routes follow waymarked trails, some cross remote and challenging terrain which may include exposed sections calling for a sure foot and a good head for heights. However, in many instances, alternatives are provided avoiding the most demanding sections. The guide also offers comprehensive advice on public transport access and accommodation options, and background notes on each of the featured mountain regions.

From narrow ridges to wide glacial valleys and from shimmering fjords to striking alpine peaks, Norway is home to many awe-inspiring landscapes. Throw in the warmth and hospitality of the Norwegian Trekking Association’s extensive hut network and you have all the ingredients of a fantastic adventure. This guide is an ideal companion to discovering some of Norway’s classic shorter hikes and best-loved mountain landscapes.
