Mountain Area
Norway

The Norwegian people are a mountain race because of the substantial north-south ranges, subdivided by fjords and valleys, that dominate the country.

The country's highest peak, Galdhopiggen, is in the Jotunheimen mountain region, the home of a national park of the same name as well as the 29 highest peaks in the country. Because of the elevations, this area of the country is the most popular for hikers and climbers looking to reach great heights. Popular paths and trails emanate from Gjendesheim, a popular entry point for mountain enthusiasts, and a route along Besseggen is commonly used by visitors as well as the Sognefjell Road, designated as a national tourist route.

For a more secluded but equally magnificent mountain trip, head to Finse, which is reachable only by train (no roads go there). It's remote; the only 'civilization' is the small town that clusters around the train station. However, the solitude of the region is perfect for intimate communion with the heights by bike or on foot. The Hardangerjokulen glacier on the southern slopes is striking in its raw beauty, while the azure waters and unforgiving landscape complete the experience.

If skiing and snowboarding are how you best enjoy the mountains, head to Hemsedal, Lillehammer, Trysil and many others for deep natural snow and plentiful lifts.

At the end of your day, hang up your skis, park your bike or just take off your boots and relax in warm comfort in any of the cottages we feature.
