Norway - landscapes by Eidsbugarden in Jotunheimen

Norway - landscapes by Eidsbugarden in Jotunheimen

Eidsbugarden is a central meeting place for people hiking in the very popular mountain range Jotunheimen in Norway. This photo (a stitch of 2 photos) includes the road going down to the Lake Bygdin and Eidsbugarden with the hotel and the mountain cottage Fondsbu to the left. In the back some of the highest summits in Jotunheimen - several with an altitude over 2.000 meter.
Eidsbugarden is a tourist center which lies at the western end of Lake Bygdin in the Jotunheimen mountain range on the outskirts of Jotunheim National Park in Oppland, Norway. Eidsbugarden lies to the southeast in Jotunheim. (ref. wiki).


Vi have a break here at Eidsbugarden - sitting at Turistforeningens mountain cottage Fondsbu and looking down to the Eidsbugarden Hotel and the small quay for the tiny tourist Boat MB Bygdin that makes 2-3 tours a day between Bygdin and Eidsbugarden.

Follwing the shores of the lake Bygdin you can reach several popular hikes and paths into Jotunheimen.
As to the highest peak in the back of this photo mount Galdeberget at alt. 2075m (app. 8hrs T/R - did that hike some years ago....)

At this visit we was not in for any mountain hike - but did a visit with our bikes.
A tour app. 40km T/R along the road from Tyin and in to Eidsbugarden.
A fine day along the gravel road - only open in the summer.
