Description

Join Stalheim Oppleving on a two days pack horse tour through a historical tourist route from 1885.

ABOUT THE TOUR
Every day there will be a walk of approx. 23 km. Each day’s walk can be regarded as a full day tour, and lasts for about 8 to 10 hours. For those interested, it will be possible to ride on horseback for parts of the tour. The pack horses will carry most of the heavy load.

There will be opportunity to fish along the way.

THE ROUTE
The tour starts at “Stalheim” and goes up trough “Brekkedalen”. From there the tour will go through “Tverrdalsskaret” –“ Urdaskaret” along the large” Mulavatne” and further to the destination “Målseth”. Here you will spend the night in a DNT hut, or camp out in the open in a lavo.(depending on what the guest prefers). There will be served a roasted lamb dinner in the evening.

The tour continues the next day on a gravel road past “Hestavatne” until you reach “Urdaskaret”. There you enter the route from the day before and make our way back to “Stalheim” again.
