"The lonely heights of Oppland" Oppland by evaanna
Oppland Travel Guide: 349 reviews and 853 photos
Oppland is a county in central Norway comprising the mountain ranges Dovrefjell, Rondane and Jotunheimen with Norway's two highest mountains - Glittertind and Galdhopiggen. The mountains look wild and deserted while the few towns and villages are all situated in the river valleys, the most popular of which are Gudbrandsdal and Valdres. The area is popular with tourists, especially skiers and trekkers. During our short stays there we met quite a few, some of them well past their prime yet bravely pushing on. If you go trekking there you may not meet anybody apart from a fellow trekker or two for hours - the population density in the area is 8 per square kilometre and the local people seldom leave their valleys. But if what you fancy is a tete-a-tete with wonderful pristine nature, don't hesitate - you will certainly find it here.
