Troll - trail SOUTH

 Venabygdsfjellet - Lillehammer appr. 115 km / 8 days

A great ski trip in the southern part of the Troll Trail.

To begin with, you stay 4 days at Venabu, which is stuated  in the forecourt of the Nationalpark Rondane.  You can ski short or long trips in the area, before you "connect" to the ordinary Troll-Trail and continue together with the group southwards to Lillehammer.

The tour goes from open mountain terrain in the north, via a more "friendly" terrain to the Olympic city of Lillehammer in the south. Rondane massif is a nice scenery in the background. The route crosses Øksendalen, continues past mountain farms on Øyerfjellet, and further on to Nordseter, Sjusjøen and Lillehammer.

Track and ski:
The trail passes through varied terrain. The trail runs mostly in well prepared track, but sometimes you will have short distances where the trails are not so well prepared.  The trip is best suited for well-trained skiers. Good touring skis/ normal cross-country skis are recommended.
There are opportunities for ski rental at Venabu Fjellhotell.

Self guided tours including luggage transport: 
This is an individual self guided trip, but  maps and detailed tour description are included in the package. 
When you are out skiing, the luggage will be transported to the next accommodation.
All tours are connected to the group that skis the ordinary Troll-Trail from Høvringen/Rondane to Lillehammer
