Blå = Middels

Dette er turer som passer for deg som har grunnleggende turferdigheter og er i normal fysisk form.

Rød = Krevende

Turer merket med rødt passer for erfarne turgåere, med god utholdenhet. Turene krever ofte gode tursko og annet turutstyr, samt kunnskap om kart og kompass.

Hvor krevende en tur er bestemmes blant annet av antall høydemeter (stigning) og lengde på turen. Selv om turen går i flatt terreng, kan den merkes med rødt dersom den er veldig lang. Og motsatt, selv om turen er kort, kan den merkes med svart dersom den går i bratt og krevende terreng.

Situated along Gudbrandsdalsleden

Day 1: (22 km) Ringebu - Hundorp

The pilgrimage starts at Ringebu Stave Church on Panoramaveien, “the road with good views”, to Vålerbrua. From the Våler bridge up through the residential area Kjønås and down towards the Bærsveinhølen, an old bridge site where the Frya river ends up in a mighty waterfall.

You continue through pine forests, on old roadways and along Gudbrandsdalslågen (a big river) until you see Dale-Gudbrands Gard, an old chieftain's seat and the centre of power for Gudbrandsdalen in the Viking Age. Here you will find the story of the meeting between Olav the Holy and Dale-Gudbrand in 1021, the historic "Christian church" from Snorre's Heimskringla.

The pilgrimage continues past the South Fron Church from 1787 with distinctive features. An octagonal stone church located in the middle of the Gudbrandsdalsleden. You walk through the rectory where Ludvig Holberg lived for a period as a child. The rectory dates from the 1300s. The day ends at Sygard Grytting where pilgrims have been staying since 1280.
