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.
SeasonsThe 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.
CentresStavanger, Otta, Hjerkinn, Kongsvoll and Oppdal are the key bases
DifficultyThe treks require a good level of fitness, some experience of mountain hiking, the occasional head for heights and good waterproof hiking gear. All stages are graded according to the Norwegian Trekking Association's grading system, with most falling into the challenging and very challenging categories.
