Valldalsleden goes from beautiful fjord to mountain, from coast to inland. It is a pilgrim’s trail following the footsteps of Olav the Holy. For Olav, it was an escape route. For today’s wanderers, it’s an adventure. When Olav the Holy fled the country in the winter of 1028-1029, he brought his ship ashore in Valldall and went from here over the mountains to Lesja and Dovre. It is this route that Valldalsleden follows. It begins down by the fjord, goes up the valley and over the mountains through Reinheimen National Park. From here, the trail goes down into Lesja and then onwards to Dovre where it connects to the Gudbrandsdalsleden: a continuous road from Valldal to Trondheim. Accommodations vary from hotels to campsites, trekking association huts and farms.
