About Hødntinden

The peak has the world's finest views as expressed by mountain pioneer Emanuel Mohn when he saw the mountain range in Jotunheimen from here in 1884. Not only that. To the south you get to overlook the valley over Vangsmjøsa and in the west Tyinkrysset with cottage settlements.

Toppen is as nice to walk both summer and winter. In the summer you follow the Fv 252 towards Eidsbugarden for about 1 km and park your car there.
