It is not without reason that the hike called “Triangle” in Trollheimen is on the Norwegian Trekking Association’s top ten most popular hikes in Norway. The Triangle takes you through grand landscapes between Gjevilvasshytta, Jøldalshytta, and Trollheimshytta. Both Gjevilvasshytta and Jøldalshytta are great as a starting point for hiking the “Triangle,” but it is also possible to start from Trollheimshytta.
To start your hike off on the right foot, spend your first night at your starting point instead of arriving mid-day and beginning your trek. This hike is suitable for children from 10-12 years old and up.
Suggested route from Gjevilvasshytta is to start by hiking to Jøldalshytta, a nice day-hike through the eastern parts of Trollheimen. Continue to Trollheimshytta the next day. From Jøldalshytta you have three alternative routes towards Trollheimshytta;
The “normal” route over Geithetta, the route through Svartådalen, or the route which takes you over the three peaks of Trollhetta. The hike from Trollheimshytta, back to Gjevilvasshytta over Mellomfjell is one of the most varied routes in all of Trollheimen with spectacular viewpoints along the way. Total length will vary depending on the choice of direction, but the Triangle is about 60 kilometers long.
