What to Expect?
Norway, in one word, is spellbinding. The pristinely beautiful glaciers and mountains, backed with lakes and summits, make Trollheimen a place to visit. On the first day of the trek, you will be transferred from Oslo to Oppdal in a train. Enjoy the relatively more comfortable day 1 with a visit the largest graveyard from the Viking Era, located at a stone throw distance from Oppdal.
Next morning, a 40-minute short commute will lead to Storiladen. This is inside the main regions of Trollheimen, and the pursuit of mountaineering begins from here to the marked trail at Kavatn. The day requires around 7 hours of hiking.
The next day requires trekking in the 2.5 km gravel road and reach Innerdalen. In the final stages of the day, trekking route leading up to Bjoraskaret gives a breathtaking view of Innerdalen Valley, the most beautiful valley of Norway. The day ends with around 5 to 6 hours of trekking.
Day 4 brings a full exploration of Innerladen. Start the day to reach the high altitude point of the region at the Tower of Innerdalstarnet, located at about 1,452 meters. The rocky areas leading to the summit with twisted roads is a joy to try. The overall hike time for the day is 6 to 8 hours.
The final day will see you getting down along the 20 km valley of Storlidalen and cross the Lake Tovatna and reach the end of the valley side. The highlights of the day include the swampy valley terrain and a view of Kringlehoa and Storsalen range. From Storlidalen, you can commence your return journey.
