The national road across the Valdresflye plateau passes along the border of Jotunheimen National Park, with Gjende as the key gateway into this heritage-listed nature preserve. The trip across the Valdresflye plateau provides plenty of opportunities for walks in varying landscape, where you yourself select the length and level of difficulty based on time, weather and physical constraints.

Among the many ideal starting points for trails marked by the Norwegian Mountain Touring Association (DNT) are Bygdin, the Valdresflye plateau, the Gjende district, Maurvangen and Bessheim. Besseggen near Gjende - where Per Gynt of Ibsen-fame performed his fameous stage-ride - is the most popular route among the DNT-marked trails.
