Trekking in Rondane National Park

This tour is on request, please contact us for information and booking

By Norwegians, the Rondane massif is one of the most beloved hiking areas in the country.  Rondane National Park is an ideal place to experience the mountains and highlands of Eastern Norway. This was the first National Park in Norway, listed in 1962. Today, it covers an area of almost 1,000 square kilometres.
Within the Park, you find ten peaks that reach beyond 2,000 meters above sea level. Not all of them are reachable on this tour, but from Mysuseter you can hike some. The fittest actually make six summits in one day. At Høvringen you are in the highlands, where the mountains are easier to climb, and the landscape calls for peace and meditation. From the mountain Formokampen, you have great view of the Rondane massif, and from there you can proudly point out the places you've been.

When you switch accommodations, from Mysuseter to Høvringen, your luggage is transferred, so that you can enjoy the hike with just a light daypack.
After a strenuous day of hiking, you can relax in a comfortable hotel, and enjoy a tasty dinner based on local ingredients, while allowing today's adventures to sink into your mind.

The tours are self-guided, with luggage transfer. You can decide for yourself, how long and steep you want to go. There are lots trails to choose from.
You get maps and some route suggestions from us. You can also ask at the accommodation sites.

Day 3 - Tuesday:
Hike to the summit of Storronden (2138 m.a.s.l.)
This is the second highest peak in Rondane. It is relatively free of difficulties and quite accessible. This hike starts out just like the one to Veslesmeden. You must get to Rondvassbu Mountain Lodge first. From there you have a long hike, partly on trails covered in stones.
