itinerary

DAY 1

Norway

On arrival in Norway, we transfer deep into the heart of the Jutenheimen National Park. Our destination tonight is the tiny outpost of Eidsbugarden, on the westernmost reaches of Lake Bygdin. Our first night will be spent in true Norwegian style at the National Park Lodge where we can relax and take in the fantastic scenery.

 

Meals: Dependent on flight schedule

DAY 2

Gjendubu Lodge - 17 km

After a good breakfast at our lodge, we depart on our first day’s challenge - a trek to the wild unspoilt outpost of Gjendebu. Springtime in the Jutenheimen comes quite late and, when the surrounding valleys are covered in a carpet of flowers, we are in for a real treat. We should arrive at Gjendebu by mid afternoon where tonight we will enjoy a delicious supper and relax around a roaring log fire.

 

Meals: B,L,D   Accom: Lodge 

DAY 3

Memurubu - 13 km

This morning we leave the Gjendebu Mountain lodge and begin trekking along the lake before making a steep 500 m climb up the side of the Memurutunga. This is a tough and challenging ascent but, as we arrive on the high plateau, we are rewarded with stunning views overlooking the magnificent Lake Gjende. After lunch we descend to Memurubu where, once back in the comfort of our lodge, we have a great meal, which can be followed by a shot of warming Norwegian aquavit!

 

Meals: B,L,D   Accom: Lodge

DAY 4

Gjendsheim - 15 km

For our last day of trekking we climb almost 600 m, directly from our lodge to the highest point of the morning. After a couple of hours we reach our viewpoint overlooking the famous Bessegen Ridge, Norway’s most famous walk mentioned in Ibsen's’ Peer Gynt. Here, a glacial blue lake seems to rests alongside the emerald green rainwaters of Lake Gjende, separated only by a narrow walkway. Although this trek is walked by thousands of Norwegians during the summer months, it is not one for vertigo sufferers as we hike our way up the Bessegen Ridge to 1,750 m, before descending to Gjendesheim Lodge where a cool beer awaits. Every Saturday the lodge prepares a typical Norwegian meal with reindeer, elk or moose - a fitting way to celebrate the end of this Norwegian odyssey.
