Most convenient starting point for this trip is Trondheim. From there, it is only an hour by train to Meråker, starting point of this trip. From there, you either ski up or take a taxi to Bjørneggen, an unstaffed cabin, owned by the Norwegian Turistforeningen (DNT), as all described cabins apart from Blåhammaren. We were lazy, took a taxi and loads of time to kill at Bjørneggen. Hence the circular track around the cabin, part of this .gpx file. Day two takes you to the Ramsjøhytta: after a tough climb, the terrain flattens out, offering phenomenal views in all directions. The last hour involves a steep climb an even steeper descend, partially through forested slopes. Inexperienced skiers: take your skis off! Day 3 is a long slog, but technically easy. The first stretch from Ramsjøhytta entails an enjoyable descend, great to train those downhill skills. After flattening out, the trail snakes its way along the Storsanka riverbed, eventually reaching the fantastic staffed Storerikvollen cabin. Celebrate your achievement with good food and drinks: you`re more than halfway there! Day 4 is the most spectacular day-trip of this tour, climbing all the way to 1100, towards one of Sweden`s highest mountain cabins, the unsurpassed Blåhammaren Fjällstation. Yes, it is a bit of a rough day, but you will be rewarded in so many ways. Amazing views over some of Scandinavia`s highest peaks, for example. But also the exquisite food and amazing service at the Blåhammaren. Oh jeah, there`s also a sauna with stellar views over the valley, best to enjoyed with one of the many craft beers they serve. The last stretch starts with a phenomenal 600m descend: by now, you`ve surely honed your downhill skills, so this is easy. More and more people appear on the tracks as you approach the town of Storlien, walking their (sledge) dogs or going for an afternoon skiing trip: what a life. From Storlien, one could easily take a train back to Trondheim (airport).
