Hiking from Tempelsetra to Høgevarde is only a 5.5 km walk. We started from Tempelsetra (925 meters above sea level – masl). The weather was cloudy and pretty cold – only 7 degrees Celsius. Autumn had already arrived, and painted the mountains with beautiful colors. The trees doesn’t grow above 950 masl, so this was the last ones:

We could feel the 500 meter ascent in out feet when we arrived the destination – Høgevarde cabin. It was pretty cold there too – 4 degrees Celsius. Warm waffles and coffee felt good and gave us the strength to return safely.
The Norwegian Trekking Association has several cabins available for anyone coming. This one has 5 beds and a cafe, but behind it there’s a new one with another 25 beds. We didn’t sleep over, but returned to the car before dark.
