About Yksendalsbu og Tomashelleren

Three days with mountain skiing and two cozy cabins in the southern parts of Jotunheimen. You start off at the parking lot at Tyin or Tyinstølen and choose between finding your own way or following marked path to Yksendalsbue. After the first meters up to Steinbusjøen it´s an easy crossing of the lake and then down the valley Yksendalen to the cabin.

Next day It´s only 11 kilomteres up to Tomashelleren, so you can do an aditional trip to one of the surrounding mountains if you like. 

Back to Tyin or Tyinstølen it´s also a pretty easy journey.
