This is a trip over Dovrefjell, Tafjord mountains, Skridulaup and Jotunheimen.

The first day, a visit from Hjerkinn to Åmotdalshytta.

So one can go from hut to hut the rest of the trip. 13 days.

It's probably some stones to go in, so you should have tent if you miss cottage to another in a day

It is about. 100 kilometer between Hjerkinn and Bjorli. Here is the bus so you can end the trip. The same at Grotli.

One can also start from Bjorli or Grotli.

I have made all the routes on the GPS maps on my PC and checked the routs with paper maps.

Have also checked the routes on paper maps with a description of the different routes to the DNT.

Have checked the snow conditions on the routes. Can see that there is too much snow yet.

I have to wait to out in July before I go.

Has also changed the GPS. From Garmin Vista C to Garmin Vista HCx. It was a big improvement. Before I got no satellite in house. Now I get 6-7.

I do not lose the connection in dense forest and scrub as I did before.

Have inserted a memory chip at 4Gb.
