Best English Guidebook for Gudbrandsdalsleden from oslo to trondheim


New Member
Hello all! I am planning to walk Gudbrandsdalsleden from oslo to trondheim in august 2020, does anyone know which is the best English Guidebook? I can't seem to find many of them

Any advice much appreciated! Also is there enough cheap accommodation along the way?

Thank you : )

I used the first edition of Alison Raju's guide, then quite old but still very useful when I walked this route in 2012. A newer edition is now available, but might be starting to suffer the same way. Whether it is best or not is difficult to tell.

You might find that a combination of resources will be more useful than a single guidebook. The Norse pilgrim site has good maps, as well as up to date information about accommodation, and you will find other resources on this forum and elsewhere.

There is adequate accommodation. I have no idea what you think might be cheap, but you would be walking in one of the most expensive countries for travel in Europe, so don't expect it to be the same as pilgrim routes in southern Europe.
