Besseggen hike

Package that includes a hiking map and tickets for the “Gjendebåten” boat trip that takes you to the starting point. Optional number of nights with three course dinner and breakfast, and the tickets are valid for the day after your arrival. It takes 50 minutes to drive by car from Nordre Ekre to the parking facilities at Gjendeosen. Since the boat leaves early, we make a breakfast tray with continental breakfast which can be enjoyed in the room.  We also make a tasty sandwich lunch, provide a water bottle  and fruit for the day you are doing your Besseggen hike. The package does not include transport and and the hike is without guiding.

The popular Jotunheimen hike

The package includes the boat ride from Gjendesheim to Memurubu, from where you hike back to Gjendesheim over the Besseggen mountain. The hike in Jotunheimen National park, is one of Norway’s most popular and most beautiful hikes, and you must expect a 5 to 7 hours hike for most.
We recommend staying for 2 or more nights, then you can enjoy relaxing in our inner courtyard after your hike, before the evening dinner is served in restaurant. Where you can enjoy today’s 3 course menu with a clear conscience!

Check out this vodeo from VisitNorway, you can se highlights from the hike, and the video ends with a visit with us at Nordre Ekre.
