Come to the mountains in June when it is still spring with patches of snow, many small streams and fresh green leaves. Enjoy the longest days in an area where it doesn’t get dark. Walk to a peak in the middle of the night to see the sunset


Come to the mountains in Juli  and enjoy the warm summerdays. Join walks in the open mountain landscape and be fascinated by the wonderful view. Maybe there is a possibility to take a bath along.


Come to the mountains in August  and discover Peer Gynt and numerous other cultural and musical events, while still having  plenty of time for hiking in beautiful scenery .
