End to Gjendesheim season approaching

Would you like to exprience the Norwegian mountains and Besseggen? We can take you to Gjendesheim in Jotunheimen! The summer season ends 6th October, so there is still a chance.

Utsikt over Gjende

Every summer, Valdresekspressen by NOR-WAY Bus Express offers green travel to Gjendesheim - a starting point for the hike to the spectacular Besseggen.  

The world gathers at Gjendesheim

Trekking tourists from all over Norway and the world are attracted to the vast and demanding nature of Jotunheimen. The area offers both advanced and easier trekking routes. The conditions, however, are ever challenging and requires preparation and good equipment.  

Besseggen is one of the gems of Jotunheimen and one of Norway's most popular hiking destinations. From the tourist cabin, Gjendesheim, you catch a boat that crosses the lake Gjende. It takes you to the start of the hike across the Besseggen. Crossing the peak, you walk on the edge looking down on Gjende, on one side and Bessvatnet on the other. A challenging 8 hour non vertigo-friendly walk. 

This year's trekkers have included people from across Norway, Europe and the rest of the world.

Bus - choose green transport

We are happy to offer the trekking tourists an alternative to driving up to the mountains, each group in their own car. Travelling by bus is good for the environment and is better for the mountain nature. If you choose to drive a car, 75% of the emissions of your stay in the mountains come from the transport. By catching a bus you reduce this and travel more sustainably. In addition, you may relax and enjoy the view on your way to the mountains.  

Valdresekspressen by NOR-WAY Bus Express goes from Oslo all the way to Gjendesheim up until  6th October. If you would like to walk Besseggen, there is still a chance this season. Search for deaprtures and ticket fares in our journey planner!
