Rondane in a nutshell

This popular hike will take you through the heart of Rondane National Park in a few days. We start in the east and gradually rise through the forest and above the tree-line towards this impressive mountain range. For those interested in geology, the nature here shows us how the landscape has been formed by the help of the glaciers throughout history.

About the terrain Rondane covers a varied mountain landscape of high peaks, lichencovered plateaus and lush valleys. The park is dominated by the high peaks, narrow ravines and deep valleys of the Rondane massif. The poor bedrock supports only a sparse vegetation of mainly lichen and heather. Boulders and scree make the access difficult at times.
