Beautiful hike. No protection from the elements so prepare for all weather. There is a good rocky scramble but would not want to attempt it in snow or strong wind. Good hiking gear is a must. The trail is well marked and plenty of other hikers.

If you enjoy rock scrambling then the last part to summit is really fun. Great view from the top. Watch out for weather as I can imagine it to get a lot trickier in wet conditions.

My favorite hike so far in Norway for sure. Very challenging, though, mainly due to length. I would say all of the elevation gain/loss is quite doable, but we were very tired after passing the big lake and the descent at the end is hard on your knees. Took us 6 hours with 4-5 10 min breaks and many stops for pictures. We were going max 3.5 km/h when walking. I’m not sure how it could take much longer than 7 hours unless you are stopping for hours at a time or got lost.

Lovely views, especially on a sunny day. This trail is very poorly marked though. The first 2km or so are fine, with the big red Ts marking the way. However after that it gets a. It dicey, with the trail crossing many boulders and loose rocks. I did not find this part enjoyable. Good views from the top though.

This is an amazing hike that is full of breathtaking scenery. Go on a clear day as this type of views you do not want to miss. Hiking poles are a big plus to save your knees a bit. I will definitely do this again.

I was a bit shocked by just how much snow has already fallen at the higher elevations. Make sure to follow the red "T" markers as the trail was easily hidden by the snow and these are your only makers to show the way. AMAZING views and worth the effort and scrambling for them. I did this hike with a full hikers backpack to spend the night after the climb just past Memrubu...I DO NOT recommend hiking with such a weight. The rock scramble down was sketchy.

This was an awesome trail with amazing views and I highly recommend it. However, I have some cautions to make your journey more enjoyable. Having spent a lot of time reading about the trail, I was still surprised by the amount of time it took for me and my 17 and 24 year old daughters to complete the hike from Gjendesheim to Memerubu. We are all in decent shape and were well equipped. We all had fairly light backpacks (15-20 pounds) as we were planning to take the boat from Memerubu to Gjende and stay overnight. Based upon my research I had planned on 5-7 hours for the trip. However, even with minimal stops and maybe 15 minutes for lunch and photos at the top, it took us 8 hours even though we were rushing to make the 3:45 ferry to Gjende. We ended up missing the boat and luckily made the 4:45 ferry back to Gjendesheim just in time. To truly take the time to enjoy the views, have a relaxing lunch, take a few side trails and take photos, I think 9 hours would have been ideal. I'm glad we didn't try my original plan to hike the whole distance through to Gjende in one day! By the time we got to Memerubu we were spent. I recommend leaving early in the morning (6:30 am) if you plan to make the boat to Gjende. Also, the trail is fairly mild except for the steep ascent until you get about 1/2 way through. Then the trail has a number of fairly long, strenuous, and a bit nerve racking descents over large boulders. Another reason to build in a bit more time.

sehr schöner weg, am Anfang steinig. Man kann leicht den Fluss erreichen und läuft durch ein sehr schönes Tal mit grandioser Aussicht.

Je recommande vivement cette randonnée qui nous a pris 7h. La vue sur les lacs est magnifique. Cette balade est difficile car une partie sur 2 km est plus de l’escalade que de la marche à proprement parlé (pas idéal pour ceux qui ont le vertige ou pour de jeunes enfants).
