 Jotunheimen National Park

Jotunheimen National Park is a national park in Norway, recognized as one of the country´s premier hiking and fishing regions. The national park covers 1,151 km² and is part of the larger area Jotunheimen. More than 250 peaks rise above 1,900 metres, including Northern Europe´s two highest peaks: Galdhøpiggen at 2,469 metres, and Glittertind at 2,465 metres. The Jotunheim lakes of Gjende and Bygdin are in the center.

The National Park covers most of the mountainous region of Jotunheimen, including Hurrungane, but Utladalen, it lies in both Oppland and Sogn & Fjordane counties. Glaciers have carved the hard gabbro rock massifs of the Jotunheimen, leaving numerous valleys and the many peaks.

Wildlife include the reindeer, elk, deer, wolverines and lynx. Most lakes and rivers hold trout.
