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.
