About Rundemellen

Rundemellen is a well-known landmark that can be seen from many areas of Valdres. At the peak you can enjoy a superb view of Eastern Norway.

There are two routes to Rundemellen. They can be combined to make a round trip. One begins at the parking area, and the other approx. 120m up the road. Both take you around the mountain and they meet in the northwest, where a single route continues to the top. The path from here is marked with small cairns. There are many larger cairns in the top area of Rundemellen, but the highest point has the biggest cairn and can’t be missed. Sign your name in the log book.

Getting there
Follow road 51 north from Fagernes, approx. 11 km, and exit to the right towards Melbybråten. After 200m, turn half right on Køllstadvegen. Keep driving straight and continue past the toll station (NOK 50 in 2010) toward Juvike, Lie and Turrsjøen. (Approx. 7 km). At the junction after passing the cattle guard, turn left towards Turrsjøen and keep going for another 2 km. Parking area on the left hand side.
