From Selstali to the top

Partly very steep and a demanding route. A rough route in bad weather and strong wind. A good option is to hike one way and go by Gaustabanen the other way. The most common is to hike to the top, and go by Gaustabanen down again.

Hike one way: approximately 5 hours
Level of difficulty:
Demanding

This is a demanding trip which contains very steep terrain in some sections. Hike from Selstali to the northeast end of Selstalitjønn Pond, and then southeast into the Gausdal Valley to Aslakstaulvatn Lake. The trail continues up through the steep rockwork eastward to the hiking trail to Stavsro. From here, follow the trail up to the top. This is a great hike that starts in beautiful wooded terrain, and which continues up above the tree line to magnificent views of large parts of Norway. The trip is suitable for families who are used to hiking in the mountains.
