Winter in Jotunheimen

Skis has been used in the mountains for thousands of years. The terrain is largely the same - but the equipment has changed. For those who enjoy summit trips, then randonnée skiing is the stuff that dreams are made of – lightweight equipment that takes you to the summit and then makes every turn fun on the run back down. The spring ski season in Jotunheimen offers white clad peaks and with many great starting points on the Valdresflya plateau and along the Sognefjellet pass.

Jotunheimen - Home of the Giants

Norwegian writer Aasmund Olavsson Vinje gave the mountains their name in 1862, inspired by the wild landscape and Norse mythology. The mighty mountain area has Northern Europe's highest mountain, and the municipality of Vågå is a perfect base for both high and low level trips in the national park.

Vinje is one of many who have been drawn to the mountains of Jotunheimen. From the 19th century, interest in mountain sports flourished, bringing tourism to the mountainous areas with it. British mountain climbers claimed the highest peaks, and William Cecil Slingsby made over 45 first ascents in Jotunheimen, as well as several more in the mountains in Western Norway

Artists and musicians have also been inspired by Jotunheimen. The best known is perhaps Henrik Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" where in the scene known as “the buckride”, Peer tries to convince his mother that he has ridden over the Besseggen ridge on a reindeer. Edvard Grieg was also inspired to compose "Gjendine's lullaby” by the dairy maid Gjendine Slålien from Gjendebu. Gjendebu was just one of many mountain dairy farms in Jotunheimen that early on started to provide food and accommodation for mountain hikers.

Besseggen

The iconic Besseggen ridge is a few hours drive from Vågåmo, and every year thousands of people make the popular mountain hike. Many people become mesmerised by the great views over Gjende and the Bessvatn lake from the ridge. Lonely Planet cites Besseggen as a hike worth making, and National Geographic has named Besseggen as one of the world's most exciting mountain hikes.

Central Vågåmo

Vågåmo has a wide range of shops and services in a nice town centre, all within walking distance of the Vågåvatnet holiday centre.

Here you will find several grocery and clothing shops, as well as various other shops and a number of niche businesses. Although the kitchens in the cabins are fully equipped with all the equipment you need to show off your culinary skills, you can also find several cosy places to eat serving top food in Vågåmo.

Vågåvatnet holiday centre has a beach area by the beautiful Vågåvatn lake. The holiday centre is located to the right, just out of the picture.
