The distances: Bessheim-Gjendebu 24.5km, Gjendebu-Olavsbu 16km, Olavsbu-Spiterstulen 26km, Spiterstulen-Gliterheim 18.5km and Gliterheim-Bessheim 22km so 107km in total.
The first day across Gjende the wind was hard and cold, also the second day. From Olavsbu to Spiterstulen was perfect, we just missed the hundreds of reindeers that were moved from one seter to the other but were troubled by the holes in the snow that they made.
The next day the storm at Spiterstulen was too hard to continue so we had a day to rest.
Then to Glitterheim was fun, climbing steep across a rocky slope but with a fantastic view.
The next day temperatures were high so there was water on the lakes and parts of the tundra were without snow...
Arriving at Bessheim, diner was served and the sauna was heated. Sitting at the fire place we looked back at the best cross-country trip that we made.
