- Lake Savalen Camp
|It was during the summer of 1991 - in fact the calendar already showed
1 September - that one of the original Nortreks
riders first met Stein Sorknes, owner of Lian Gaard near Tynset, a village located about midway between Oslo and
Trondheim in the eastern part of Norway.
The Nortrek rider had been on a two week riding trek with a group of other riders from the Rondane mountains to the
Sylene Mountain Range in the district of Trøndelag.
At that occasion Stein showed his hospitality by letting us stay overnight at his mountain camp (sæter) at Lake Savalen.
Ride across the mountains towards Lake Savalen:
We camp at an original sæter (mountain
farm) which provides excellent overnight facilities and serves as basis for daily rides into the surrounding mountains where
