3 days of hiking in the mountains and accommodation in some of the most beautiful areas of Gothenheim
Do you dream of a mountain walk among high mountains, beautiful peaks, wild nature, among flowing rivers and majestic waterfalls? On this trip, we go from 1,267 meters above sea level and down to Hjelle at 75, while staying in two of our idyllic cabins. This will be an extraordinary experience. We recommend bringing someone you want to share this experience with!
Friday 24 June: Free bus from Oslo bus station to Krossbu Turisthytte
Bus from Oslo bus station on Friday at 13.00. On Friday we arrive at Krossbu which is ideally located near Sognefjellsveien and surrounded by more than twenty peaks of 2,000 metres. Within walking distance of Krossbu, Smørstabbreen is Jotunheimen’s largest glacier.
Saturday 25 June: flight from Krossbu Turisthytte (1267 masl) to Skogadalsbøen (832 masl)
On this day, the trip goes to Skogadalsbøen, the jewel of Jotunheimen, where we walk up the high mountains and down the Vetle Utladalen to the DNT serviced cabin. If we’re lucky with the weather, we get a great view of both the Smørstabbreen block and Fannaråken, which lie on either side of the track. The trip is on a beautiful road and is a relatively easy one. Trails were laid in the wet marshy areas of Vetle-Utladalen.
In Bøen it is as if time stands still and it is easy to drop your shoulders, let go of the chase and find joy in the serene nature of beautiful nature.
Sunday 26 June: flight from Skogadalsbøen (832 masl) to Hjelle (75 masl) and bus to Oslo Bus Terminal
The trip continues from Skogadalsbøen and south down wild and beautiful Utladalen, with a chance of beautiful views of Hurrungane and the majestic Vettisfossen.
This is a complex trip, where registration applies to buses and excursions with tour guides, and where accommodation must be booked by the individual (according to the conditions that apply to accommodation).
Everything you need to know about the flight and to register can be found here. Note that the registration deadline is June 9.
