    3-4 hours hike, easy to medium level.

  • Day 3, Tuesday: Hike the mountain, Heimdalshøe, 1843 m.a.s.l.

    This is a nice day trip, and suitable for the whole family. The last part of the ascent to the top is a bit rocky. We park barely 2 km before Maurvangen camping. The first part is marked, and we follow the path to Haugseter towards Heimdalen for half an hour and then go straight up to the left towards Heimdalshøe.
    4-5 hours hike, medium level.

    From the mountain summer farm Hålistølen we start by following a sandy moraine. It’s a little steep in the beginning. We make short breaks and enjoy the view. Eventually, we reach the summit and enjoy splendid views towards Lake Bygdin with the peaks in Jotunheimen National Park in a distance. We descend, using the so-called ‘Track of the Germans’ towards our mountain summer farm, where we are treated with a traditional dish of sour cream porridge and cured meat.
    3-4 hours hike, medium level.

    Instead of the hike, you can join a guided tour in Synshorn Via Ferrata, followed by lunch at a mountain summer farm with rest of the group. Additional cost for the Via Ferrata is NOK 950.- to be paied at the spot.

  • Day 5, Thursday: Hike Svartdalen Valley

    We start the trip aboard the venerable boat at Bygdin lake. We leave the boat at Torfinsbu and walk up towards Svartdalen. This tour is quite easy but classy among the walks in Jotunheimen - lunch stop between tall, wild peaks. In Svartdalen we walk along three lakes before the descent towards Gjendebu. From there we go by boat on the Gjende lake to Gjendesheim.
    Walking time approx. 5 hours + boat and bus. Medium to demanding level
