Hiking activities in Central Norway
Jotunheimen's hiking possibilities are practically endless and all are spectacular. The best maps are Statens Kartverk's Jotunheimen Aust and Jotunheimen Vest (1:50,000). The Tourist Office in Lom can offer advice, route descriptions and guided hikes through the park.
Although the serious trekking takes place in neighbouring Jotunheimen National Park, there are several hiking trails closer to town. A popular route is the 3km return loop up Lomseggi (1289m) to the century-old stone cottage called Smithbue, with some excellent views of Ottadalen and Bøverdalen en route.
