About Gjendehøe

A great afternoon hike with lovely views. Start the trip by boat across Gjendeosen and go to the top on the north ridge. Nice walk for younger children or for stretching your legs after a long drive.

Alternatively you can drive highway 51 towards Valdresflya and park by the descent to the lake Nedre Leirungen. A great round trip is to go up the east ridge and down the west ridge.
