Walk 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 breath-taking sceneries. It takes you into one of Norway’s most spectacular mountain areas where numerous important historical events have taken place. The Pilgrim's Roadalso known as St. Olav's Way or the Old Kings' Road, was a pilgrimage route to the Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim, the site of the medieval tomb of St. Olav. You will discover parts of the Gudbrandsdalen path, the longest pilgrim route in Norway, starting in Oslo with a total length of approx. 640 km. 

On day 3, you go off the Pilgrim's Road, to join a musk safari with an authorized guide.

This is a nice tour for those who want to combine hiking in highlands with a good level of comfort. You stay in nice, private guesthouses and your luggage is transferred from one accommodation to the next.
The tour is suitable for people with normal/good shape. You should be accustomed to walking in mountain areas and all kinds of weather.
