Breheimen hut-to-hut

The Norwegain trekking assosciation - DNT - owns hundreds of mountain huts and maintains an extensive hiking network linking them together.
Hardangervidda and Jotunheimen national park huts are the most famous. But they are also the most crowded, and the huts are more like big mountain hotels.
In most Norwegain mountain regions you will find self-served huts where you can stay over, make fire and food. Some of the huts even have food supplies.

Breheimen National Park is an untouched gem. Hidden between Jostedalsbreen and Jotunheimen national parks it does not recieve huge numbers of visitors.
But the landscape is amazing. Because of its size and location it contains some of the biggest glaciers in Norway, some of the deepest valleys, lots of old mountain pastures and hundreds of high peaks. Luster region has the highest numbers of self-serviced mountain huts in Norway. In Breheimen you can choose anything from a 3-day hike with 5 hours walking every day to a 1-week hike with 7-10 hours a day.

It is easy to get to Breheimen with a public bus from Eplet. In the reception at Eplet you can get maps and information about Breheimen. We sell the standard DNT-key you need for most of the huts in all of Norway. You get the money back if you return the key.We reccomend that you stay a few days at Eplet before the hike. In that way you will get all the information you need for a hut-to-hut hike in Breheimen. It is difficult for me to describe everything to everybody on e-mail. For a hut-to-hut hike you will need wind and waterproof clothing, walking boots, backpack, map, general safety equipment and sleeping bag.

This is the basic Breheimen 3-day hike, it is amazing:  

Day 1. Bus from Eplet to Skjolden. Walk from Skjolden to Fast  (or take a taxi the first 5 km along the road if it is raining)  
Day 2. Hike from Fast to Fivla.
Day 3. Hike from Fivla to Navarsete. Hike from Navarsete to Gaupne. Bus from Gaupne to Solvorn.

You could also stay at Navarsete to make an extra day. Make day 3 and 4 very short.

If you have a car you can drive from Eplet to Gaupne, leave the car there, stock up with food and take the bus to Skjolden 

If weather forecast is very bad:
Day 1. Bus form Eplet to Luster. Taxi from Luster to the end of Dalsdalen. Hike to Fivla
Day 2. Stay at Fivla.
Day 3. Hike from Fivla to Navarsete. Hike from Navarsete to Gaupne. Bus from Gaupne to Solvorn.

For any overnight hikes in Breheimen you need the standard DNT-key. You can get it in the reception at Eplet.
