    Hi Michael, Do you have an e-guide to planning a hut-to-hut trek in Norway’s Jotunheimen National Park? I scanned your webpage and didn’t find one but might have missed it. Thank you.

      Hi Missy, thanks for asking. I have not published an e-guide to trekking hut-to-hut in Jotunheimen, but my story about that trip does include my usual trip-planning details, which would probably answer many of your questions: how to get there, when to go, how to book huts, a daily hiking itinerary, costs, etc. Like many stories at my blog, reading that one requires a paid subscription (which you can purchase for as little as $5 if you’re not already a subscriber). If you’d like much more detailed advice and answers to your specific questions about how to take this trip, beyond the logistical info in the story, I can provide that; see my Ask Me page for details.

      Good luck. It’s a beautiful hike and a great adventure with some of the best huts I’ve ever stayed in.
