Hiking in Norway - South

The 10 best multi-day treks

By Ute Koninx

Guidebook describing 10 short treks in southern Norway, plus a handful of variants. The hut-to-hut routes, of 3 to 8 days, cover Jotunheimen, Rondane, Dovrefjell, Trollheimen and Ryfylke, and an ascent of Galdhopiggen, Norway's highest peak at 2469m, is included. Suitable for competent hikers with experience of navigation and mountain weather.

Seasons

The hiking season in mid-Norway runs from mid-July to the end of September (from early July in the Lysefjord area). Snow cover is likely outside of this season.

Centres

Stavanger, Otta, Hjerkinn, Kongsvoll and Oppdal are the key bases

Difficulty

The graded hikes require a good level of fitness, some experience of mountain hiking, the occasional head for heights and good waterproof hiking gear.

Must See

Norway's highest peaks, Galdhøpiggen and Glittertinden, in Jotunheimen's wild glacial landscapes; the harsh beauty of Snøhetta and Dovrefjell; Rondane's rugged moonscapes; the shimmering Lysefjord; world-famous 'vertigo hikes' including the Besseggen ridge and Kjeragbolten; the 4444-step staircase at Flørli; Trollheimen's lush valleys and unforgiving peaks; the unrivalled hospitality of Norway's mountain huts
