Would try to go from Snøheim to Eiriksvollen in Sunndalen early in the year. Have had some problems last year so I will try me on this trip.
This is a trip of approx. 90km in mountainous terrain.
Hoping and waiting for good weather!
It is now not allowed to drive from Hjerkinn to Snøheim. One must take feed bus. This follows the trains.
