On the evening of day 1 at 6.00pm you gather at Bygdin Fjellhotell, 12 km north of Beitostølen along road 51. You are served dinner and Torgeir takes you through the program.
After a first night you begin the trail ride from Beitostölen at around 9.30 am by saddling the horses for the day. The day’s ride is 20 km (12 miles) and you follow mainly mountainous terrain. You will pass the 1608 meter high (5,300 ft) peak Bitihorn and end the day with a healthy gallop on the sandy beach at Bygdin. Tonight you stay at the charming High Mountain Hotel in Bygdin, which has a lovely restaurant and a cozy bar.
After a hearty breakfast buffet you saddle up again. Today you are going over Valdresflya. You will pass the ride’s highest point, 1400 m (4,600 ft) above sea level. You are greeted by stunning views of the Bessho Leirungs Valley and Rasletind. You rest at the start of the Heim Valley. Today’s ride is 30 km (18 miles).
In the evening arrive at a beautiful and intimate hotel. The food served here is superb. You will stay in nice homes or apartments. In the evening, Torgeir gives a lecture on, for example, hoofs.
Today, the horses rest and either take it slow or follow us on an exciting mountain activity. You can choose between rafting, boating on beautiful Lake Gjende, or walking over the mythical Besseggen, handicraft tours or canyoning (you swim and climb in the deep ravines). There is something for both the cultural and the adventurous. These activities are not included in the price.
Today you head south again. You ride through Bruruskaret and down to the Upper Heimdalsvatnet. The destination is Haugseter at Vinstervatnet. In the evening there will be competition in "horse shoe throwing".
