About

Norwegian Scenic Route Rondane runs from Venabygdsfjellet to Folldal, and from Sollia Church to Enden, a total distance of 75 km (Road 27/219). It is open to traffic throughout the year. The stretch linking the tourist route and Euroroute 6 in Gudbrandsdalen (Frya) may be closed over Ringebufjellet for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.

Norwegian Scenic Route Rondane follows the border between the Rondane massif and a well-preserved cultural landscape. Rondane's mighty mountain massif lies as a backdrop along the route, changing with the weather and seasons, but always rewarding us when we stop and wonder.
From the lookout point at Sohlbergplassen, you can see Rondane as the painter Harald Sohlberg portrayed it in "Winter Night in the Mountains". What these mountains meant to the artist cannot be understated. "This one painting would have been enough to make me satisfied with my entire lifes work" wrote Sohlberg in his diary in 1914. The original hangs in the National Gallery in Oslo.

Rondane National Park was established in 1962 as Norway's first national park. Rondane displays unmistakeable and characteristic traces from the ice age. A dry climate and firm terrain make the area well suited for mountain hiking and summit tours, with many marked paths and tourist cabins. One of Norway's last remaining wild reindeer herds inhabits Rondane.

The area has a rich cultural history. The old buildings at Folldal mines, dating from the mid 18th century, show the life and the class distinctions of the old time mining community. At Strømbu, Henrik Ibsen's Peer Gynt met the invisible serpent. Today Strømbu is a rest area of modern architecture and a popular starting point for mountain walks in Rondane.
