Historic hotels and traditional gourmet in Lom
On the eastern side the landscape is less dramatic, however, we are close to Norway’s highest mountain: Galdhopiggen (2,469 m /8,100 feet). As the inland climate preserves buildings better than the Atlantic air, the Lom area is well-known for its historic buildings.
Lom is also famous for its traditional gourmet restaurants. Roïsheim, Fossheim and Vianvang all serve high-class traditional Norwegian food combined with the best beer and wine.
On return to Oslo we can cross the Jotunheimen National Park (“Home of the Giants”) recognized as one of the country’s premier hiking and fishing regions. The national park covers 1,151 km². More than 250 peaks rise above 1,900 metres (6,000 feet), including Northern Europe’s highest peak: Galdhöpiggen at 2,469 metres (8,100 feet).
Galdhöpiggen is reachable for a normal skilled hiker (see our Hikes & Walks), but an authorized mountain guide is required since the trail crosses a glacier.
