Wanderlust: Norway - Jotunheimen and Rondane

After a good night's rest in Lærdal, we took the ferry from Fodness to Manheller to get on route 55 that would lead us to Turtagrø Hotel (Hurrungane, Jotunheimen). We started a 3-hour hike to the Tindeklubbhytta and enjoyed the Skagastølstindane mountains we were surrounded by.


After the hike we drove to Lom (the route over the Sognefjellet was breathtaking) and found a sleeping place there to spend the night.


The next day we continued our route to Ringebu, Rondane, another national park in Norway. The scenery from Jotunheimen (which helds the highest mountains in Norway), slowly fade into this great flattened out area of hills and low mountains. We lay a bit in the sun on this kind of crusty vegetation that looked like coral and then climbed the Muen 'mountain/hill' where we had this magnificent view over a bit of Rondane.
