    6 days - Group Hike - Classic Norwegian trek through Rondane National Park

    This is a classical route, which takes you from the north to the south of the National Park. Rondane is one of Norway's most popular hiking areas, because of its unique landscape with spectacular rounded peaks and the ground covered by a blanket of reindeer moss. Accommodation in staffed lodges.

    Rondane covers a varied mountain landscape of high peaks, lichen covered 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.
