The Troll Trail

Rondane - Lillehammer - 9 days/approx. 170 KM
Self-guided tour with luggage transport

The Troll Trail offers excellent skiing terrain in magnificent surroundings.

This is a continuous marked ski trail, which passes south, through miles of untouched nature. It starts at Høvringen, next to the Rondane National Park, and runs south via the mountains of Ringebu to the Olympic town, Lillehammer.
The Troll Trail is a cross country tour with a large degree of variation. It runs through varied and relatively easy terrain, without steep mountains and peaks to climb.

Track and skis:
The Troll Trail offers daily stages of 17 to 38 km. On certain parts the trail is groomed daily, on others only when necessary (after heavy snowfall/heavy winds). We recommend good mountain skis with half steel edges.

There are opportunities for ski rental at Høvringen.

Luggage transfer:
While you are out skiing, your luggage is transferred to the next accommodation. You only have to bring a small backpack with extra clothes and food.

For whom:
The trip is best suited for experienced skiers in good shape (over average).

Tour with guide:
For groups, min 6 pax, the tour can be arranged with a guide. Please contact us for prices and dates.
