Description

Mountain-peak hike and round-trip - 9–10 km - 2-3 hours.
Round-trip along the “melkeveien” The road that in the old days was used to collect the milk from the summerfarms - 6km - 2-3 hours.
A family-friendly trek to the highest peak in the Fagerhøy area. Spectacular views towards Norway’s most famous peaks in Jotunheimen, Dovrefjell and Rondane. Most of the walk follows the milkroute. Along the way are 5 mountain dairy farms. The trail is way-marked and of high quality as it is often used by pupils visiting the Gudbrandsdal Outdoor Centre at Fagerhøy.
With Fagerhøy as starting point, follow the trail down towards the Peer Gynt Route and Aanekresetra mountain farm. The trail will lead to the “Melkeveien" - an old farm road used to collect milk from the 5 dairy farms still located along this route. Follow the trail until you reach Svelle mountain farm, and you will find a sign towards Dørdalsknappen. For a less challenging walk, continue along the “Melkeveien” as it will lead back to Fagerhøy. The Dørdalsknappen trail will take you up to the 1126 metre-high peak offering breathtaking views of the most famous peaks in Norway. To get back down, continue along the trail and down to Hovesetra mountain farm where you can pick up the “Melkeveien” leading back to Fagerhøy.
