Trail description

Reinheimen National Park has very varied terrain; the highest mountains range over 2000 MASL while the lowest point is below Trollveggen at 130 MASL. In the west there are sharp peaks, deep valleys and powerful rivers, while in the east the rounder mountains, lakes and mountain plateaux dominates. Much of the original alpine ecosystem, including wild reindeer, wolverines, golden eagles, gyrfalcons and ptarmigans, is still intact in the area. 

Reinheimen has numerous cultural heritage traces from the former hunting of wild reindeer, including pitfalls, mass trapping systems, bowman’s hides and habitations where the hunters lived.
