Gjendesheim - Glitterheim

Route info

Description

A really heavy hill in the beginning before you reach Veslefjellet. And then easy terrain when you pass Bessvatnet and Russvatnet. You follow the lake some kilometer. Another hill up to Tjörnholet with the small lake. Look to the right and you'll notice Nautgardstind.

Now it's only downhill left to Glitterheim. This route don't get you into any trouble at all.

Hiking time

7 hours

Worth to know

Nice tent places with sandy beaches along Russvatnet.

Why not take a closer look at Nautgardstind, it's good training.
