Dovre National Park

  • Grimsdalsvegen 2138, Dovre
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Between Dovrefjell and Rondane you find Dovre National Park. In this area, the experiences are great and nature is majestic. Dovre is available both from Dovrefjell, Grimsdalen, Dombås and Folldal.

The Dovre National Park consists of plateaus and hiker-friendly, rounded summits that reach 1700 metres. Most of the park is above the tree line. The landscape around the highest peaks has an arctic character with remnants of permafrost. The park boasts numerous alpine plants, both common and rarer ones. The bird life is also varied and rich. The park is part of a larger area where wild reindeer roam. For some years, the reindeer have been used as an environmental indicator of the current state of the Norwegian mountains.

The Pilgrim Trail
Many people find inspiration from walking along his- toric tracks and paths. The Pilgrim Trail from Oslo to Trondheim passes through the Dovre National Park between Budsjord at Dovre and Fokstugu on Dovrefjell. This stretch offers magnificent views to the valley of Gudbrandsdalen and three of the most famous mountain massifs in Norway, Jotunheimen, Rondane and Snøhetta. When Harald Fairhair (850-933) crossed Dovrefjell with a large, armed contingent at the end of the 9th century AD, he almost certainly followed just this route. When hiking along this path, you should also have time to reflect and to enjoy the magnificent scenery.
