The nature and cultural trail along the Valdres Line is a popular walking route from Dokka to Odnes, a round trip of 14.6km. Along the route you will find lots of information signs about the nature in the area and about the landscape and landmarks you will experience along the way. There are lots of trip possibilities along the abandoned Valdres Line throughout the year. The line was closed for the public in the 1980s. In the 1990s the line was fully abandoned, with the transport of logs and goods between Eina and Odnes along the railway ceasing. The railway tracks are no longer used by trains, but they offer a fantastic way for the public to discover the beautiful landscape throughout the seasons.
