Do you have a dream of exploring high mountains, pristine plateaus, and birch tree forests - all in their winter splendour and all in one exciting trip? This is a 9-day self-guided tour with luggage transfer, following a continuous way-marked ski trail of approximately 165 km. The daily stages are from 20 to 35 km.
Hailed by cross-country skiing enthusiasts as one of Europe’s must-do adventures, the Troll Trail offers excellent terrain, surroundings and conditions for Nordic skiing. The ski trail passes south, through miles of untouched nature. It starts at Høvringen, next to the Rondane National Park, and runs south via the mountains of Ringebu to the Olympic city of Lillehammer. Overnight stays at comfortable hotels and mountain lodges, and one night in a traditional self-service cabin.
Varied and relatively easy terrain, with no steep mountains or peaks to climb. Most of the trail runs in high mountain terrain, above the tree line, and offers excellent views of the peaks and surroundings.
NB! This is a demanding ski tour for experienced skiers with a good level of fitness (over average). The tour is self-guided. We provide maps and tour descriptions. That the trail goes through some quite remote areas. Close to most accommodations, the tracks are groomed daily. In other areas the trail is not maintained at all, or only once a week. The weather can be rough, with heavy snowfall and winds. Under such conditions, it is difficult to maintain the tracks, and you must follow markings and be able to use the maps and a compass in addition to the tour description.
