S8 Slagsfjellrunden: Length: 22.7 km. Incline: 753. Vertex: 1187 m.

Long and beautiful mountain hike that takes you over two mountain plateaus with terrain from mountain landscape to high mountains and fantastic views to the national parks Langsua, Jotunheimen and Rondane.

Tour description

Follow the road up the ski resort and turn right in the middle of the hill. Follow this and turn left on Torsdalsveien. Follow this to the end of the road and continue on the path straight ahead. Keep the direction straight ahead at all intersections to the top between Bånseterkampene and Prestkampen. A trip along the edge of Bånseterkampene is worth the trip. In fine weather, this provides Skeikampen's finest view from the trail that winds right on the edge of the cliff!

At Slagsfjellrunden you follow the trail straight ahead over the top and down the west side of Svartvatnet and further down to Skardbua. At Skardbua, follow the T-marked Peer Gyntstien up the first cliff. Turn left at the small pond, across the stream and up the slopes towards the top of Slagsfjella. This trail is marked purple on the rocks. Once up at the top, you have a view of Langsua in the west, Jotunheimen in the northwest and Rondane in the north. Go down the first hill, turn 90 degrees right on the first floor and follow the trail around inside the valley, on the right side of Øvre Massingtjernet and further down on winding dirt paths. On the brink where it gets steeper, the alternative route back to the center is to turn left onto "Kristianråket" (Wooden sign). This takes you up over the ridge and down to Ørnkampen where you follow the S9 Svarttjernstien all the way back to Høyfjellstunet.

On Slagsfjellrunden you continue straight ahead down the last steep cliff towards Peer Gyntvegen. Turn left on Peer Gyntvegen and follow this for a few hundred meters until you turn right onto the road to Fyksesetra. Down by the farm you walk the trail on the right side of the farm. After Fyksesetra you continue on a nice trail, over the cliffs and around the south side of Nisjuvatnet and further down to Systuggusetra. Turn left on the farm road 200m up to Systuggusetra and right onto the trail there. Once down by Einstadsetra you follow the farm road straight on to Veslesetervegen. Turn left on Veslesetervegen and follow this over the bridge. Turn right towards Paradis right after the bridge and follow the trail up to Vesleseterkrysset and the road further back to Høyfjellstunet.

The route is marked S8 Slagsfjellrunden.
