Tel: +47 61212990
Have you been at the top of Lomseggen (1289 m.a.s.l)? Key words: Majestic view, peak pulse and beautiful scenery.
Follow a well marked path to the top, marked yellow. The trip starts either from Norsk Fjellsenter or from Andvord Gard. From the top of Lomseggen you can continue the trip to the top Eggjapiken or the 2000 meter peak Storivilen, 2068 moh.
During this trip you walk into Breheimen National Park. View to the national parks Jotunheimen, Reinheimen and Rondane opens over the tree line. Bøverdalen valley cuts in between the highest summits of Norway and you get a nice view towards the highest of them all – Galdhøpiggen (2469 m.a.s.l.). This is a steep climb so make sure that you bring enough food and water.
From the roundabout in Lom center, cross the bridge over the Bøvre River. Leaving the The Norwegian Mountain Center on your left side, go up the road and pass Storstabburet (the Big Barn).
Go straight forward until you come out to the asphalted Solsidevegen road. 200 meters after the elegant Sygard Andvord farm, the trail turns right. There are signs to Lomseggen, Bordvassvegen and Tor Jonsson’s House. After about 300 m, Bordvassvegen trail (red tagging) and route to Lomseggen (yellow tagging) split.
The route passes by Smith-hytta stone hut at 1150 m.a.s.l. and goes into a big bow up to the front point of Lomseggen mountain.
From Lomseggen you can go the same way back or follow the route further to the east. The route goes down the ridge, somewhat steep at the tree line.
• Until the middle of June there can be a lot of snow on the north side of the route. Ask about the conditions at the Tourist Information Office / The Norwegian Mountain Center.
• Tor Jonsson’s House is open for guided tours on request. More information at the Tourist Office.
• Smith-hytta at 1150 m.a.s.l. is a stone hut built for a German artist in 1890.
Estimated time: 4-5 hours in total.
