Rondane National Tourist Route is a 75-kilometre-long stretch of road following the border between the Rondane Mountains and the valley from Enden to Folldal in the county of Hedmark, in Norway. It's one of the famous scenic drives in Norway.
Don’t forget your camera! Along the route, exciting stopping points have been designed for taking breaks, parking for hikes and taking photographs. One such place is Sohlbergplassen that offers magnificent views of LakeAtnsjøen and the mountains of Rondane. From here you can see Rondane as the painter Harald Sohlberg portrayed it in "Winter Night in the Mountains". Another one is Strømbu, the reconstruction of an old lay-by to a full rest area with services, indoor area with a roof terrace, information boards, a small shop and long-term parking. Strømbu is the main starting point for hikes through the Rondane Mountains from the east. It may be closed over Ringebufjellet for short periods in winter when the weather is bad.
Part of the Road 27/219, the drive is definitely worth it. The route runs along the east border of Rondane National Park, protecting the Rondane massif, and west of a cultural landscape. The mountains are dry and well-suited for hiking and summit tours, including many marked paths and cabins. Along the route are also the mines at Folldal. The route follows the east side of Rondane National Park, passing through scenery that alternates between the cultural landscape on one side of the road and the mountain massif on the other. National Tourist Route Rondane follows the border between the Rondane massif and a well preserved cultural landscape. Rondane's mighty mountain massif lies as a backdrop along the route, changing with the weather and seasons.
