Where to stay in Jotunheimen

There are plenty of hotels and cabins in Jotunheimen. Camping is allowed almost everywhere.

Hotels and cabins

Stay in a town or village, or escape to the mountains. The Norwegian Trekking Association (DNT) maintains a number of mountain cabins in Jotunheimen. Around the national park you will also find a number of private cabins with long traditions, for example Bessheim Mountain Lodge and Cabins, Memurubu Turisthytte, Spiterstulen Tourist Lodge, JuvasshyttaRaubergstulenKrossbu Turisthytte and Sognefjellshytta. Many of these offer rooms of varying standards at different prices. For an overview please see Mountain cabins in Jotunheimen. Jotunheimen also has a youth hostel, Bøverdalen Vandreheim.

For a special place to stay, try Fossheim Turisthotell in Lom. Solid timber houses in keeping with traditional building techniques, together with art and antiques, help to create an interesting atmosphere you will most certainly enjoy. Fossheim is a member of the Historic Hotels and Restaurants in Norway. A similar alternative is the Røisheim farm, a small hotel on an old farm. This is where the very first mountain climbers in Jotunheimen stayed. There are also other hotels in Jotunheimen offering the same style and comfort. An overview is available at Hotels in Jotunheimen.

Most places that offer accommodation also serve food.

Several farms in Jotunheimen offer a place to stay, for example Brimi SæterStrind GardStorhaugen GardNigard FlækøyGalde UppigarSygard Storrvik and Sollid Gard og Hytter. If you stay at a farm you can expect a quiet peaceful atmosphere and an opportunity to be a part of everyday life in the region. A comprehensive list is available at Visit Jotunheimen.

Camping

If you plan to sleep in a tent, caravan or mobile home you are welcome to do so on one of around 20 campsites in the area, some of which also have cabins for rent. The sites vary in size and standard, but all offer sanitation facilities. An overview is available at Visit Jotunheimen

The so called right of access grants visitors access to the countryside, provided they show respect and consideration for nature and people. You are free to pitch your tent outdoors, except in cultivated fields and at lay-bys, and as long as it is at least 150 metres to the nearest house or cabin. If you want to stay for more than two nights in the same place, you must ask the landowner's permission, except in the mountains or very remote areas.
