Hike over Besseggen




Norway's most popular mountain trip

Many tens of thousands of people visit Besseggen every year. The view over Gjende and Bessvatnet from Besseggen is an experience you will never forget.

The trip is almost 14 kilometres long and runs between Memurubu and Gjendeosen, with a very steep climb in places. Good footwear is a necessity. Even in summer, you need to be aware that the temperature is colder the higher you climb, and there may be sudden changes in the weather. The hiking trip goes over the high mountains, and you will get a better and safer experience if you make wise choices on what to put in your backpack, and get to know everything about the trip ahead of time.
