  • Jotunheimen means 'Home of the Giants' - gods and Giants will be here at home. And those who see this landscape, believes that word on it. Around 3500 km2 area consists of the highest part of the Scandinavian mountains and extends over wide plains and craggy heights alike. The nature here is wild, untamed and distant; She can be compared with nothing, has its own distinctive character. You get to know the best on long walks. The hiking trails here are well developed and well supplied by huts; However, you should prepare well on such an undertaking. The most famous Wanerweg here is the besseggen Ridge, which leads to the mouth of the Muru from Gjendesheim. This ridge is in places only 30 meters wide. The views from this hiking path are justifiably famous. But Jotunheimen is also known for glacier tours, rafting or even cycling. The broad Moors and mountain landscapes are home to a very special flora, they are rich in the variety of lichens, mosses and low crops of berries. Here, everyone can serve as long as he behaves like a guest - at the home of the Giants.
