To the peaks 6500 FT

For high-peak enthusiasts, Jotunheimen National Park has Norway’s highest mountains within a short distance of the Alpine centre. It’s simply a matter of choosing which peak to visit next. Spring skiing on 6500-foot mountain peaks is highly recommended!

Family-friendly peak expedition in Jotunheimen – Rasletinden (6609 feet) Rasletinden is one of the peaks you see from the Valdresflye road. But this peak on the south side of the Leirungsdalen Valley deserves more than just a glimpse from the road. The path to the top is not particularly difficult and it gives a wonderful view over the Leiriungsdalen mountains, an area often called the “Gjende Alps”.
