If you want a great view inland to Jotunheimen, Rondane and Venabygdsfjellet, Dynjefjellet is a great destination for most people.
Go from Lundes and into Flaksjølivegen. When you see sign that shows the road to Svartfjellet on the left, you follow that road..
The tour starts at the boom for Flaksjølivegen, below the parking lot at the Lunde shop. You follow the road inwards until you meet a road on the left, which is marked Svartfjellet. You follow this seat road up to Svartfjellsæter. Just before you reach Svartfjellsæter, follow the path up the left side past Svartfjellet. The trail eventually goes west towards Dynjefjellet which you follow all the way up to the Dynjefjell plateau. Here is a small pond, where a table with benches is placed. Then continue south to the highest peak on Dynjefjellet. The walk then continues south to an intermediate plateau, where you can choose whether you also want to go to the top of Nyseterfjellet, before taking the path down a steep stretch towards the plateau which you then follow towards Holtesætra. Read the historical description on the board at Holtesætra, before following the signs back to the Lunde shop.
