Jotunheimen’s peaks & lakes (short version)
A self-guided trekking tour that takes you to the heart of Jotunheimen National Park in Norway – a place far from the modern lifestyle and iconic with its outlook and natural heritage. One can not resist the divine beauty of the landscape, dotted with thousands of fjords, guarded by majestic sharp peaks. Historical and typical accommodations (lodges, cabins, hotels) are hidden between the green hills, most of them always built next to gurgling rivers or emerald glacier lakes. The itinerary passes through the famous Black Valley (Svartdalen), takes you to the magnificent Bitihorn peak (1607 m) and many more sites of interest. A free day is left for you to decide how to spend it: relax or explore at a lower pace the surrounding mystical areas, where on a foggy day you will have the feeling that the mythical trolls jotner, are looking for you behind the hills.
Give yourself a break from the hurried lifestyle and go on a short independent hiking tour in Norway!
