Suggested itinerary for Extended walking tours

There are many opportunities for multiday tours in the Rondane. These may even involve walking from adjoining areas such as Alvdal Vestfjell to the east or from the Rondane Lillehammer area to the south or from Dovrefjell to the north. A description of these are really beyond the scope of the book and further information on walking routes in the adjoining area can be obtained from the DNT. In the Rondane itself though there is a classic circuit in which is a day tour and highly recommended. Day 2: Rondvassbu lodge to Dørålseter lodge either via route Ro.3 or the more remote route of Ro.23. Day 2: Dørålseter lodge to Bjørnhollia lodge either via route Ro.4 or the more demanding route of Ro.12 over Høgronden. Day 4: Bjørnhollia lodge to Rondvassbu lodge either via route Ro.2 up Illmanndalen or the long route over Rondslottet Ro.21 and then down to Mysuseter. This is an excellent circuit in the for a walking tour in the summer and a ski tour in the spring.
