Improvements of footpath toward Bødalsbreen
More and more people are using the trail from Bødalsseter
towards Bødalsbreen. Because there are long stretches of wet terrain the hikers
are liable to stake out new routes. Last fall, parts of the trail were improved
with stone surface and replacement of the top soil. This work will continue,
depending on weather conditions and water flow. In order to get the job done it
is necessary to use steam shovel and caterpillar tracks. Only when water flow is
low during late fall will it be possible bring in heavy machinery and to
retrieve gravel from the river bed. We ask your indulgence for this
inconvenience until the reconstruction work has been completed.
