Sabotørstien is 8 km and goes from Rjukan Fjellstue to Norwegian Industrial Workers museum

About

The Saboteur trail goes in varied terrain, mostly forest, at 450-1040 metres above sea level.

The saboteur's trail is the path the world-famous Norwegian resistance used during the World War 2, the night they ought to blow up the heavy water plant at Vemork.

The tour starts from Rjukan Fjellstue. From Rjukan Fjellstue you follow the gravel road for a little while, then it turns east, through varied forest - and mountain terrain.

Along the way there are information boards that tell you the history when Norwegian saboteurs went from Hardangervidda, and down the steep gorges to Rjukan to blow up the heavy water plant.

The spectacular nature makes the trip even more special. The trail is well marked, with some steep descent towards the end. During the trip you will have impressive views of Rjukan and the Norwegian Industrial Workers' Museum

Good footwear is essential. On rainy days boots are recommended as the trail can be wet and somewhat muddy.
