With over 250 mountains of almost 2000 meters high, including the 2469 meters Galdhopiggen, Jotunheimen offers nature at its peak. Hike, bike, climb or ski. Flow with rivers and listen to waterfalls. Camp wild and free, spend the night sleeping...more
I truly love this national park, you'll love its breathtaking landscapes, glaciers, waterfalls, lakes and rivers. I had some of the best hikes of my life here.
According to myths and Norse cosmology, the Giants (Jötnar) inhabited one of the Nine Worlds, Útgarðr, or Jötunheimr....More
Me and my friends were camping in a camp near Øvre Årdal and took this road as a detour to check this fascinating part of Norway. Don’t have any other words except that this place is out of this world. Worth every single extra kilometre...More
This is about as high you can get if you are driving. Even in midsummer this is mostly windy and cold, so bring proper clothes. The road is normally open from May to September, due to weather conditions.
If you have the opportunity, do not...More
We stopped here on our way to Geiranger. There is a nice, new, guest center with restrooms and a restaurant. There is a walking path that gives you some nice views of the area, or you can follow one of the trails to see more....More
Wow stunning. A real highlight of our 2 week car trip around the Western Fjord region. We took the boat out to Memurubu and started our climb there. Although in our 40s and 50s we are fit and experienced climbers. Having done knife edge ridge...More
I visited Jotunheimen last week and had an appalling treatment from one crew member of Gjende company, which has the monopoly there.
Unfortunately, his horrible behavior did a big harm to my whole trip in Norway for no apparent reason but sadism and xenophobia.
If like me snowy mountains are for you this trip is a stunner. We got a coach from scholden and did the hairpin journey into the mountains. We were lucky in that it had recently snowed and in places it was as high as the...More
Took the boat 08:00am on 30th August. If it wasn't for a school trip of 17 yos there would only be about 10-15 of us that morning.
Booked boat ticket online for 150 NOK, and car park was another 190 NOK (as I remember). The...More
Did the Bessengen Ridge hike in late August on the traditional boat-Memurubu-Gjendesheim route. There's a received wisdom that this way is easier but the views are better going the other way. I disagree about the second part, the views through the valleys of Jotunheimen national...More
Really recommend this hike, the views are amazing.
We are a young couple (30s, relatively fit) and it took us 6,5h including breaks. It is demanding - a steep long way up and a bit of climbing (not very hard but you need to use...More
