Itinerary:

A great skiingin the southern part of the Troll Trail, that runs from open alpine terrain close to the Rondane National Park in the north via a more "friendly" mountainous terrain to Sjusjøen and down to the Olympic city of Lillehammer in the south. The tour starts at Venabygdsfjellet. From here you can see the Rondane National Park in the background. The tour continues via the mountains of Ringebu to Sjusjøen and Ski the Birkebeiner-loipe to Lillehammøen. When you are out skiing, the luggage will be transported to the next accomodation. The trail passes through varied terrain, mostly you ski in well prepared trails, but sometimes also outside the trails. The trip is best suited for good skiers. Ordinary skis possible on this tour.
