A short cabin trekking, fit for a (long) weekend, that provides a great sense of solitude. The hike's starting point is easily accesible by car, though quite remote. The final 10 km are over a well-maintained dirt road, winding towards the higher reaches of the spectacular Modalen. The first section, taking approximately 3 hours, is easy and mostly flat, crossing a wide and swampy glacial valley towards Solrenningen cabin. The second leg is more strenuous, involving 600 meters of elevation gain through often rough terrain that is usually snow covered until early July. However, the trail is well signposted and the views are commanding (look out for the Sognefjord). Also, Åsedalen cabin, your final destination for the day, is a quaint old farm house perched on a promontory next to an impressive waterfall. The third and final stretch of this trekking is fairly easy and mostly downhill, passing a series of lakes and old summer farms in fairly swampy terrain that is grazed by inquisitive sheep.

    Hei Willem,
    I august, vi ønsker å gjøre denne ruten med familien, og vi vil gjerne spørre om de to hyttene er åpne. Er de gratis? Eller må vi kontakte DNT?
    (This August, we want to make this route with the family, and we would like to ask if the 2 refuges are open. Are them for free? Or do we have to contact DNT?)

    Cabins are open in summer - unstaffed. Payment is easy - just fill in a form! About 250 NOK pp per night. Becoming a member will get you a hefty discount, so worth it. Visit the DNT office in Bergen and register. Happy hiking - this one's great!

    Gran travessa circular amb la família.
    Refugis impecables, solitud quasi absoluta, i un paissatge preciós, amb bordes de mutanya molt boniques.
    Recomanable anar molt preparat per aigua, tant del cel com de la terra.
