Routes and Waypoints for the whole trip. Those who have MapSource and map: Jotunheimen. You must have software for MapSource 6.15.6

This is a hike I will go in August after and have been in Femundsmarka and Norefjell.

It is not certain I want to go all 3 tours, but I have these to choose from.

If I'm going to go this route I would rather have 5 days of fine weather to walk in.

Have heard that it is a nice landscape and I have been advised to go this route.

I will start from Sote Sætra. The first day I will go to Sprongdalshytta, so to Arentszbu and Nørdstedalseter the 3. day.

Then advanced to Stølsdalen and the Turtagrø 4. and 5. day.

If I continue into the Jotunheimen get the time display.

The trail goes west. And down to the upper Liagrø.
