Attractions in Jotunheimen
Jotunheimen has the largest concentration of mountains higher than 6,500 feet in Northern Europe.
High in the Jotunheimen mountains, the Sognefjellet National Tourist Route runs between the Sognefjord and the Gudbrandsdalen Valley.
Norway’s biggest summer ski center at Stryn is situated at the edge of the famous Jostedalsbreen Glacier.
Jotunheimen is centrally located in the heart of Norway between Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim, and is easily reached by public transport.
Hike the classic route over the Besseggen Ridge, walk to the top of Galdhøpiggen or drive the scenic roads over Valdresflya and Sognefjellet.
There are plenty of hotels and cabins in Jotunheimen. Camping is allowed almost everywhere.
- We are up for some real mountain hiking today, and hopefully we will do some glacier walking as well, says Anders Löwgren from Sweden.
See several of Norway's most popular attractions, such as the Nærøyfjord, Urnes Stave Church, Flåm Railway and Vettisfossen Waterfall.
Urnes Stave Church in Luster, beside the Sognefjord, is the only stave church in the world to be included on UNESCO´s World Heritage List.
