9 Day tour trough Trollheimen:

Day 1: Oppdal to the beach of Gjevilvasshytta

Day 2: To Vassendsetra Self-service Hut

Day 3: Lake Tovatna

Day 4: To Innerdalenhytta

Day 5: To Karvatn

Day 6: To Trollheimshytta

Day 7: Up on Snota Mountain and back

Day 8: Half-way to Oppdal

Day 9: Remaining way to Oppdal

I did this tour end of August 2018.

If I would do it again I would change the following:

- Use the Bus to Gjevilvasshytta instead of walking from Oppdal (Skips day 1)

- (Day 4) Do not go through Innerdalsporten after Storli, the way is basicalliy a swamp. Instead take the route over the mountains a little bit more north to get to Innerdalen

- (Day 7) Wait for really got weather for Snota, or go up on a different mountain in the area. Sonta is not an easy hike, it goes over to climbing and glaciers

- Take the (really litte) emergency Hut between Karvatn and Trollheimshytta for a night, because the way is really long

Hi Zack, it is pretty easy to get to. You can fly to Trondheim Airport. From there take the train to Trondheim. Chaange on the train to Oppdal, then you are already in Trollheimen. I started my walk from there, but I would recommend taking the bus to Gjevilvasshytta and start from there. The first day is near roads most of the time. I think the trail definitely shows great parts of the Norwegian natures. is a great resource, also for hiking areas.
