Grimsdalen

Grimsdalen må oppleves for å forstå hvor ufattelig vakker naturen er her inne!
Så hvordan kommer man til denne Grimsdalen? Man kan kjøre opp Gudbrandsdalen til man kommer til Dovre. Ca 4 km etter at man har passert tettstedet Dovre går veien inn til Grimsdalen av til høyre. Kontroller at bensintanken er full! Det er ingen bensinstasjoner inne på fjellet, og går du tom så kan det bli en slitsom opplevelse! Selve turen er ca 48 km lang fra Dovre til Folldal!  Men en opplevelse man vil huske – det blir det uansett!

The valley named ‘Grimsdalen’ must be experienced in order to understand how beautiful this region really is. So how may you find this fantastic valley? You simply drive throug the valley of Gudbrandsdalen (E-6) untill you reach mthe settlement of ‘Dovre’. About 4 km after passing ‘Dovre’ a small road runs off to your right up into the mountains. Please check that your gasoline tank is filled up! There will be no gasoline stations for the next
30 miles or so . . . And if you run out of gasoline you may be in fo9r a harrowing experience! The trip itself from ‘Dovre’ and across to ‘Folldal’ is just about 31,5 miles!
But it will be a trip to remember what ever you do! 🙂

Veien snirkler seg forbi små fjellvann, ørsmå sætre eller hytter omgitt av mektig natur til alle sider. Og i det fjerne ser vi det mektige fjellmassivet ‘Rondane’ som stadig skifter karakter med lyset . . .

The road is winding its way passing small mountain lakes and rivers or tiny cabins and mountain farms (like this one). On the horizon we may see the mighty contours of the Rondane Mountain range.

Vi avslutter denne gang besøket med dette hjertevarme smilet fra en av dalens trofaste ‘slitere’! Veien kommer til slutt ut på riksveien gjellom Folldal mellom Hjerkinn og Tolga. Retningen man tar her bestemmes av hvor turen skal gå videre.

This time we end our visit to the valley named ‘Grimsdalen’ with this heartwarming smile from one of the loyal labourers of the valley.
The road finally connects with the main road through the ‘Folldal’ between ‘Hjerkinn’ and ‘Tolga’. Where you go from here depends on your planning for the next days to come.

    The first photo deserves to be a wall hanging. What is growing on the roof of the cabin?

      On the roof? In the old days they cut the turf of the marsh and placed it on the roof above
      stone tiling. What do you think of the last picture. Looking like someone familiar from todays press? 🙂
