The pilgrims’ path through Østre Toten: from Tandsæter to Hoffsvangen, approx. 22 km
From Tandsæter, the Toten landscape reveals itself in all its glory. Leading along the ridges in this open cultural landscape through Kolbu and Lensbygda, the route offers spectacular views of the Toten villages. Dyste, Hol, and Glommen are spectacular vantage points along the way.

From Dyste, the route follows farm roads and leads across pastures, along forests and fields, past  Kolbukameratene sports ground, and then along route 244 to Hol. It continues through idyllic tree-lined avenues and along lush fields to Kolbu church, and then turns east and follows public roads, farm roads, and fields to the former Smeby school. From Smeby, it continues along rural lanes past Syljulien garden centre to Tajelykkja, and follows country roads to Glommen and narrow lanes past Mellgarden and Skjefstad, down to Håjen. From there, you then get to experience the medieval route to Hoff church.

Enjoy your trip!
