Uki. Then the following month trip in Norway which did three years ago. The General route included a trek in the nature reserve "rgnovida" of eight days, and treks in India and opoten Islands, with cruise in fjords in between and back through Trondheim.
The track with the coordinates, you can download google earth kmz file of the attachment, or you can view Google maps:

Route map

Manage:

As Norway is the world's most expensive countries, you must plan carefully harbour in advance, whatever time, the track may be. There are no direct flights to Oslo, and you must stop in Europe according to the flight (I flew with austrian airlines "company and 550$ value).

Regarding accommodation, must be pre-booked places in hostels (if you like that), or to sleep in tents. By law in Norway, you can camp free anywhere 165 m a populated area (but worth checking out again with the Norwegian tourist site-http://www.visitnorway.com/or the Norwegian trekking-http://english.turistforeningen.no/).

Each track you plan, plan ahead with the Norwegian trekking Association DNT (see link above). When I traveled, they not only helped me in choosing the walking route to season it went (around September-fall), they also helped me plan the itinerary, including transportation (buses, ships, flights) and switch between cities. In addition, when you arrive to Oslo or any major city, consult the branch premises for DNT buy maps and registration year subscription gives you a master key to the nature reserves all over Norway.

It should be noted that public transport is developed but not expensive media and who can advise him to rent a car in Sweden and then moving to Norway (Norway car rental happens several times from the other Nordic countries). Therefore, you should plan in advance how you'll see. Many times you'll find a cheaper flight from, cheaper than bus.

Equipment:

In terms of hiking equipment – this tchchno in accordance with cabins which in her walk (map which main page DNT). As you can see some of the huts are solely for sleep (no service cabin), there is a kitchen, food storage and heating (self service cabin), and some are actually Hostels/Hotels everything (staffed lodge). The Subscriber that you buy at the DNT, gives you entry to all the huts, and the hotels/hostels. As always there will be at least several self-service cottages, you cannot buy or carry food during walking (beyond what you eat during the day) – a huge advantage. In addition, waterfalls and rivers are all the time, so no need to carry water, I traveled with a pint each.
In short, minimal equipment in everything except lightweight winter clothing (rain coat, shoes), as well as in the summer season (April-August) rainy and cold weather.

Tracks:

The nature reserve "rgnovida" is the largest in Norway. The refuge is a broad plateau (the largest in Europe). You can cross the reserve different routes last about 7-10 days, or even to make a circular route (about 15 days). There are many entrances and exits to the Park to begin and end (see map attached). The track is basically a cabin to cabin, but you can set up tents where you want along the way (Oh, so you'll have to take food and water with you). As in other nature reserves, if walking on the season (summer, April-August), there won't be a problem as there are bridges across rivers, but out of season (I traveled in September), a number of bridges are broken down in order not to abuse the height of the river. So check in advance with the DNT on bridges (though they always know, I crossed the river without bridge).

The opoten are a group of islands in the North Sea area, bordering on latitude 60 degrees. The Islands in particular, and the region in General, were for me the highlight of the trip. In this area you can do whatever your heart desires – a device, or on water). There are many trails leave from different points, and they often walk days 1-2 days. It is also possible to rent a car, but the buses are good (and very expensive).

Costs:

I did a month to live at 1,500, but it includes a 4-day cruise to the Islands group from Bergen, that cost $ 500. So I'm sure it is possible also in 1000 $, if you are planning your trip. Self cooking saves costs significantly. Try to prepare minimal and accordingly, additional equipment need to buy instead, in your pocket.

I would recommend April-may or August to October, that June-July through early August are the months when even the amount of tourists (and all the Norwegians-adults and children-going on vacation). In these months the occupancy will be virtually impossible, including the tracks (I think you'll have to register in advance at the Office the DNT, set dates). In addition, high rates several times from April-may or September-October.
If you decide to travel in autumn (August-October), consider that before mid-September, some huts and bridges crossing rivers no longer usable (DNT do it to prevent hazards in infrastructure)-free cabins, service or self-service cabins available all year I understand. Nature reserves in areas Harari (e.g. Jotunheimen) not recommended for fear of landslides and snow storms, but you have to check it with the DNT.
In short-I would recommend may or September. May look greener and be a little warmer, and in September received a color past peaks, but it would be pretty cold.

I enclose a link I found on Google.

Good luck!
