The pilgrims’ path through Østre Toten: From Hoff church to Smørvika at Kapp (approx. 7 km)
With the exception of the Lie – Apelsvoll stretch and the Evenrud area, the route from Hoff towards Kapp follows a charming local road from the 1500-1600s. It leads through the yard at Hoff rectory and continues along fields across the ridge at Lie, offering spectacular views of the rural communities at Toten, Mjøsa, Helgøya, Neslandet, and the areas further north. By Kapp church, it re-joins the medieval route and leads through the chestnut-tree avenue past Undesløs, a former district court judge's residence, to Smørvikodden. It then follows the public foot and cycle path “Strandvegen” to Kapp Melkefabrikk.

At Strandvegen, just before you reach Smørvikodden, there is opportunity for a south-western detour to the south-west, past the Tallodden swimming spot, to the Peder Balke Centre.
Enjoy your trip!
