Lom Travel Guide: 18 reviews and 56 photos
Lom lies at a trafficjunction where much of the traffic headed for the Jotunheimen mountains comes thru. The area surrounding Lom stretches for many miles in each direction and is characterized by wild nature, wild animals, very good extreme sports opportunities, good fishing grounds, horseriding, trekking and hiking, glacierwalking, camping, wining and dining at good restaurants and many other things.
If you like nature, fresh air, good restaurants, variety in the types of activities you can engage in in wilderness - you should come and visit. Lom is the gateway to some of my favourite areas in Norway!
There's plenty of mountains to climb in Norway, and in Jotunheimen especially so. During summer there's also a few summer ski resorts that are open. In Jotunheimen one is next to Juvasshytta and the other is in Stryn which is a couple of hours away with car or bus.
Hiking routes are all over the place and lodges, hotels and restaurants are plentyful all over the place.
Check out these sites for mountain hiking:
- Pros:My favourite area in Norway
