Imagine this: You're finally free. You're miles away from civilization, out of the reach of hiking highways. You're on the Swedish-Norwegian border, and you're smack bang in the middle of a true hiking paradise. Sound good? Then grab your tent, pack a stove and delve deep into the wilderness. On this adventure, you'll explore the Grövelsjön over five stages. Oh, and as you'll stay above the tree line almost the entire time, there's nothing but beautiful views to look forward to. What's more, thanks to a law known as the 'Everyman's Right', you can pitch your tent up here wherever you find a nice spot. Wild camping is completely allowed — perfect for finding and enjoying the perfect sunset above the Fjäll in complete solitude.

The path leads through moderately sloping terrain to the small lake Övre Fosksjön, on the banks of which you can also camp wonderfully. From the top of Storv…
Today we go down from the mountains to the green valley. In Storsätern a small supermarket offers the possibility to buy supplies. The bus to Grövelsjön or Mora stops here. For adventurers we continue through a quaint wetland (attention: mosquitoes!) To the old dairy Valdalsbygget, where you can end…
The last day of the tour leads from Valdalsbygget steadily north. One last time you can enjoy the wonderful view over the rough fell landscape. At Stora Olån, the refuge invites you to take a break before heading down to the starting point on Grövelsjön. Directly on the shore of the lake, a large meadow…
