Besseggen: Winter Adventures
Norwegians love their skies! During summer 60 000 eager hikers cross the Besseggen peak and the viewpoint. On the other side, during winter its quiet, calm and you will have the ridge all by yourself. So why not combine the famous ridge and a winter experience?
Crossing Besseggen with your skies offer a unique experience in a otherwise closed off area. The tour starts from Gjendesheim or Bessheim with experienced guides from our partners Gjendeguiden.
Jotunheimen National Park offers ski touring from magnificent peaks with accomplished guides that are specialised in winter tourism. At the top of Besseggen, stunning views awaits you. Attach your skis and enjoy the adrenaline kick as you soar down the mountain side.
The cold and dark nights in Norway can result in truly beautiful days with clear blue skies and white snow, and long dark starry night sky.
