Overview

Climbing one of the many peaks that surrounds the park, most people will be captivated by the magnificent scenery in front of them. Apparently this is untouched nature, but if you take a closer look at the mountains and the valley, you will soon discover that this is not the case. The national park has been used for about 2000 years and is rich in cultural heritage. Along the banks of the Rotla River, you can discover traces of permanent settlement from before the Black Death. From the river and up the slopes there is mountain hamlet after mountain hamlet which testifies to great activity. However, the main activity was the withdrawal of the grinding stones that took place over a large area, from Bokhammeren in the south to Skarvene in the north, with the largest concentration in Hogfjellet. Visitors can also see the remains of dwellings, ironworks, Sami settlements, catch pits, traces of copper mining operations and old traffic arteries. One of several wonderful tourist cabins is Schulzhytta. For more than 60 years, it has been an exciting hiking target for outdoor recreation enthusiasts, both summer and winter. The cabin is centrally located inside the national park ready to host you when you have a faraway look in the eyes and are looking to get into the large plateaus. In the national parks' peripheral zone, you will find several tourist cabins that are great starting points for hiking and skiing excursions. The entire national park is covered by the Essan reindeer grazing area. Please show consideration when you are travelling in nature areas! Visit Norway published a brochure called walking in Norway 2010, where you can find further information about Skarvan and Rotldalen National Park. Be considerate of cultural relics, vegetation and fauna. Be extra careful during the breeding and nesting season. Read the Directorate for Nature management brochure about Skarvan and Roltdalen National Park.

I took a 28 km walk from Roltdalen to Schulzhytta. The walk is heavy due to bog but indeed very beautiful. I also visited the millstone quarries. Schulzhytta is a very nice place to stay for hikers.
