Unforgettable for its stage beauty that is divided into two parts. The first, a beautiful walk along the river Gudbrandsdalslågen and the second a subsequent ascent and descent into a beautiful forest to end up emptying into the Camping Vollheim which is where we will stay. We leave Otta and the Killi Pensjonat returning to the bike path parallel to the river at the height of the colorful statues chairs. The road runs close to the river and the road until it reaches a point separating to pass a bridge and the beautiful waterfall of the Ulla River. We return to the road to approach the beautiful church of Sel and the stone with the cross of San Olav that tells us that there are 284 kilometers to reach Nidaros. We cross a bridge this time on the left bank of the river, where we will walk for a few kilometers. It is a comfortable track with beautiful views of the valley that we will gradually leave behind to get closer to the Dovre mountains. As we see, it is a river of great tradition for fishing enthusiasts, especially salmon, a whole religion in this country. On pk 15, we arrive at the Jørundgard Middelaldersenter, a beautiful television set in the form of a medieval farm, converted into a hostel for pilgrims in one of its cabins. There, in 1994 the series of the novel Kristin Lavranstochter of the Norwegian Nobel Prize winner Sigrid Undset was filmed, which incidentally appears on 500 NOK tickets. After visiting the beautiful place that even has a separate chapel, we go in a slight climb to the church of Nord Sel Kirke, where we receive a beautiful and allegorical statue of the protagonist of the novel. The climb begins to be evident just after leaving the church, passing first by a beautiful but disturbing house at the same time, Laugard, who seems to have known better times. Here the second part of the stage would begin, entering the forest on a beautiful stretch, once again, of those who do not forget. The river narrows and runs through a canyon that we passed having the same to our right and the train tracks to the left. We are climbing progressively alerted by the indicators that indicate the proximity of the roads. We will help ourselves from different wooden walkways on the fences wrapped between raspberries on either side, until at a certain moment we pass the tracks and we can see them from above. We descend to return to the left margin of the same at the height of a spectacular waterfall that forms the torrent Rostae. From there the climb becomes more evident passing a humiliating place with a cross known as Ringen. There is little left to crown the roof of the stage that we reached almost next to a wooden sign. Then, we will only have to descend by path and then by track. We will find a box that tells us that we enter the Kommune of Dovre, we will follow the track and arrived at a point, very well indicated, we will leave it to go down to the right towards the road, crossing a bridge and staying to touch of the Vollheim Camping, which it is on the other side of it.
