Jotunheimen National Park Reviews
Fantastic Norwegian mountains Aug 14, 2011
If you are considering mountain hiking you should put the Jotunheimen mountains in Norway high up on your list!
You will have several possibilities; walk from hut to hut, live in your own tent. The Jotunheimen area is approx. 3500 km2 and the national park is 1155 km2 within this total area.
Jotunheimen has some of the most spectacular landscapes you will find in Norway and most of Norways 2000 m + peaks are found here. The fauna and flora within the national park is sometimes rare and you can expect to meet raindeer and a lot of interesting birds if you have a good eye.
Glaciers are a common sight and you can even walk them if you take every safety precautions, i.e. means you should use a professional guide.
You can reach the mountains by a 4 hour bus ride from Oslo.
There are 7-8 manned huts in the Jotunheimen. Pre booking is recommended but not necessary, and cost is approx. 20 euro pr night in 2-6 person rooms.
