Are you ready for an unforgettable adventure along the historic Pilgrim`s Path across the stunning Dovrefjell mountain range in Norway? Hike in the footsteps of thousands of pilgrims and be inspired by a diverse nature of cultural landscape and high mountain terrain. The Dovrefjell National Park is also famous for its rich flora and fauna. This tour is literally a walk through Norwegian history, combined with breathtaking sceneries.

Your tour begins at Toftemo, nestled in the heart of Norway`s countryside. After a short transfer your hike starts at Budsjord Farm, a listed farm placed in the hillside of the Gudbrandsdalen valley. As you set out on your path, you`ll be surrounded by lush greenery, babbling brooks, and the peaceful serenity of nature.

After a day of invigorating trekking, you`ll reach Furuhaugli, a charming mountain lodge perched amid the scenic landscapes. Here you can unwind a recharge amidst the wild beauty of Dovrefjell.

Continuing your hike, you`ll venture deeper into Dovrefjell, where the landscape takes on an otherworldly quality, and you stay at Hjerkinn mountain lodge with long traditions.

Finally, the trail leads you to Kongsvold, a historic mountain hotel that has welcomed travelers for centuries. As you approach Kongsvold, you`ll be greeted by awe-inspiring sight of the Snøhetta mountain, a true masterpiece of nature.

This is a suitable tour if you would like to combine walking in highlands with a good level of comfort. You stay in nice, private lodges and your luggage is transferred from one accommodation to the next. The terrain is varied with distances of 12-20 km a day. You should be accustomed to walking in mountains areas in all kinds of weather.
