Plans Hike Breheimen, from Høyheimsvik to Bøvertun 2015











This will be a new trip for me. There are some steep climbs here, but it should probably go.

I must take the bus from Otta to Høyheimsvik and start there.

From Arentzbu I must go to Nørdstedalseter and there I will go to Bøvertun and take the bus to Krossbu or Sognefjellhytta.

I can take off the trail and go to Sognefjellshytta on the east side of Storvatnet. I have not gone here before.

Day 1. From Høyheimsvik to Navarsete 9 km 3 hours

Day 2. From Navarsete to Vigdalstøl 17 km 5 hours

Day 3. From Vigdalstøl to Fast 16 km 5.5 hours

Day. 4. From Fast to Arentzbu 14 km 4.5 hours

Day. 5. From Arentzbu to Nørdstedalseter 18 km 7 hours

Day. 6. From Nørdstedalseter to Bøvertun 18 km 7 hours

It looks like it is very short stretch to walk, but one must remember that it is much climbs here.
