Skeikampen's most beautiful fair-weather trail! Spectacular views of the mountain scenery, with Rondane, Jotunheimen and Langsua National Park as backdrop. Take the lift to the top and explore the high mountain, and return home with your children still happy and smiling.
Take the express lift to the top. Follow the cross-country ski trail starting approx. 50 m to the left of the lift, and enjoy the spectacular views along the ridge of the Skeikampen massif, past the top of the Galten lift, across Avlundkampen and downhill to the trail junction in Torsdalsleitet. Turn left at the trail junction in Torsdalsleitet, and enjoy the downhill section leading all the way to the Peer Gynt Route. Turn left at the trail junction, and continue through gentle terrain back to your starting point – where waffles and coffee are waiting at the ambient Skeisua mountain-farm café or Nystua café.
This is an easy trip suitable for children, but should only be attempted if you are fond of downhill sections. There are many along the way.
Should not be attempted in high winds or poor weather conditions.
From the top of Skeikampen, the trail is way-marked towards Avlundkampen and Skarbua before you join the Skeikampen Round trail. For a shorter option, turn left at the first trail junction and ski down past Galten café. Keep left at all the trail junctions, and you will return to your starting point.
NB! Numerous long downhill sections along the route!
