  • I was drawn by the photograph of Viewpoint Snohetta on visitnorway.com so we decided to make a bit of a detour on our long drive day to check out this place. You have to walk up a gentle slope for abo...  more »

  • A stunning landscape with a very austere, modern lookout. We had seen pictures of the building and didn't realize this was the spot until we put on the 1.5km walk. The only detraction is so much evidence of man's activities on view out the panoramic glass wall of the hut.
  • Vantage point on the mountain Snøhetta. Take the exit at Hjerkinn to visit. Small drive still, about 15 mins. Then you can park your car at a big parking lot. Parking is free of cost. There is also a restroom, and some signs with info about the region, at the parking lot. From the parking lot you have to walk about 30 minutes to the Tverrfjellhytta (cabin) above the edge. Reasonable steep walk. On top there is the cabin Tverrfjellhytta which you can also enter. Inside you can stay warm and take time to wait. Tverrfjellhytta is a spotters spot where you have a great overview on the plain/tundra. You can wait to spot reindeer. Since it's a great vista, it is advised to bring binoculars. For photos is a telephoto lens is essential if you want to pick the animals up close, I think. We wait about 45 minutes but seen no animals. Since we had to travel further didn't had more time to wait and walked back to the car.
  • Spare, reflective building with curving wood benches-- perched, deserted, on a snowy hilltop around nothing else. Work the hike to stare and take a few photos.
  • Nice view.
  • Beautiful and cozy. Sheltered from the wind with a toilet o open fire. Possible check out wildlife
