Tour description

Drive or order transport 8 km along Peer Gyntveien to the car park under the power line in Dørdalen. Follow the path up under the power line. Turn left at the top so that you have the lake Skjellbreia on the right. When you reach the lake Storrøgna, turn right over the stream and follow the T-marked Peer Gynt Trail on the south side of Storrøgna. Turn left at the crossroads when you reach the small cabin. Follow the path over the mound by the cabin, on the east side of Storrøgna and up to the trail junction under Gråkampen. You can either take the trip to the top or turn left at the junction. After a nice descent, you should turn right over a small valley. Follow the path around Røgnmyrin.

Keep right on the main path when you start the climb after the marshes. (Alternatively, follow the path along the ridge and turn right at the junction at the top.) After another nice descent, turn sharply left at the bottom and follow this across the plain to the junction. Turn right at the junction and follow the Peer Gynt Trail down to the road. (Alternatively: Turn left onto Peer Gynt Road and follow this to the viewpoint with signs. Follow the path from the car park up to the top of Dørdalsknappan. From here, there are two fresh descent options: down along the ridge to Svellesetra or off the edge down towards Hovesetra.) Turn right when you come out onto Peer Gynt Road and left at the first intersection. Follow the road past Ånekresetra to Hovesetra and take the path to the east there. Follow the Bukkerit Trace back over the mound, down to the stream and up to the car.

The route is not signposted in its entirety, so you should bring a map with you. Please note: The area has grazing sheep and cattle.

The bicycle rental, Skeikampen Ski & Bike, has a map with all the bicycle routes.
