Hiking in the wild Jotunheimen National Park.

Norway’s most beautiful national park awaits with unparalleled attractions! During your journey across  Scandinavia’s highest mountain range you get to experience the magic of Nordic scenery in its full glory: roaring waterfalls, unspoilt mountain scenery, turquoise glistening lakes and countless little rivers and wild streams line your route through the unique nature scenery in the so-called ‚Home of the Giants‘. During the day you hike through dense birch forests, marvel at unspoilt moors and ascend to the most spectacular viewpoints, in the evenings you enjoy the tranquility and solitude in the refuges of the Norwegian hiking club. The aroma of traditional waffles and fragrant coffee enjoyed at the crackling open fire will stick in your memory for a long time to come.

Discover the capital of Norway, a city steeped in history, whose medieval centre invites to an extensive visit of the historic fortresses, palaces and parks.

An exciting bus journey takes you from the Oslofjord up into the mountains. After your arrival in the heart of the national park, you can either embark on a relaxing hiking tour onto the Synshorn-peak with viewpoint or take a stroll along the glistening Lake Bygdin. Take your time and make sure you arrive poised and with all your senses ready to experience the special atmosphere of the Nordic nature scenery.

In the morning you board a small ship, which gently takes you across the heaving waters of Lake Bygdin. In the so-called ‚Svartdalen‘, the black valley, you discover the Nordic scenery along mystical trails framed by impressive gigantic mountains and traversed by little streams and roaring waterfalls. In Gjendebu you spend the coming nights in a traditional lodge of the Norwegian hiking club situated amidst the mountains.

Depending on what you fancy, you either leisurely ascend to the Gjendetunga-peak, from where you enjoy a fantastic view onto the turquoise-blue Lake Gjendesee and the surrounding glaciers. Or you take the boat to the mountain-lodge Memurubu and there follow the spectacular high-altitude path via the Bukkelægeret-ridge back to Gjdendebu. Allow the evening to leisurely end by the open fire enjoying a social interaction with other hikers from all over the world.

An idyllic start of your hiking day on your way through the dense Nordic birch forest, home of numerous bird species. Along the roaring river Veslåe you ascend via the sparse heath ‚Fjellheide‘, here with a bit of luck you may even get the chance to observe reindeer! Once you reach the shores of Lake Bygdin, you proceed into the idyllic hut-village Eidsbugarden. In the cosy lodge open yourselves up one more time to the unique location between lakes, ‚Fjellen‘ and glaciers.

By bus you arrive back in Oslo in the evening, where in its old part of town you get to look back onto an unparalleled hiking holiday.
