The north routes with its detours of Mjølkevegen stretches from Beitostølen and north to Lemonsjøen and Vinstra. With a longer distance between the accommodations and sometimes more hills and height meters to ascent the routes are considered more difficult. From Bygdin lake it is also recommended to join the historical Bitihorn boat on a mountain cruise and continue the tour with a big detour around Tyin, and Slettefjell before heading to Beitostølen.
