Tour description

You will meet up with your guide for the day at Røte Parking where you will be provided with information about the hike.
Together with your guide you follow the dirt road from Røte up to Heng at 750 meters above sea level. From here the trail is marked with blue Ds (“Queen” in Norwegian is “Dronning”). The hike is long and demanding with a steep descent towards Lofthus. You will walk through forests, high mountains and lush orchards. The guides will use their local knowledge to ensure you get the most of the beautiful scenery around the trail and a good portion of exciting history and stories from the area.
The route down to Lofthus, including the historical “Monk steps” and hike down along the fruitfarms in Lofthus provides a nice ending of an spectacular tour.
Welcome to a great hiking experience!
