Gjendesheim (994 AMSL)
Gjendesheim, the flagship of DNT lodges, lies beautifully nestled at the east end of Lake Gjende, one of the principal gateways to this part of the Jotunheimen. Families with small children particularly appreciate Gjendesheim as an ideal place for Easter and summer holidays.
Hike choices: Most hikers come to Gjendesheim to hike over the Besseggen ridge. That's not odd, as Besseggen is a unique hiking experience, an exposed though safely hiked knife ridge between two mountain lakes. It's easily accessible and one of the more popular hikes in Jotunheimen in the summer high season. But there also are days that you can hike it in solitude. Moreover, the area around Gjendesheim offers many other attractive choices of summer hikes and winter ski tours.
Facilities: Gjendeshieim has 170 bunks in one-, two- and four-bunk rooms. It has a drying room, showers and saunas. It also has dormitories in a separate building.
Extended stays of two days or more may be booked directly at the lodge in season
NB: DNT members have priority on bunks. So, in periods when guests fill the lodge, only DNT members may advance book rooms.
