This was a stunning walk but took us 8 hours with breaks even though many publications described it as 4-5 hour valley walk. Something was lost in translation! We started at Osterbo Fjellstove and hiked down to Vassbygdi where we caught the local bus to our next accommodation. The walk was varied as previously described and very beautiful.
