Om Rondane nasjonalpark

Norway’s oldest national park lies between the Gudbrandsdalen and Østerdalen valleys, and stretches from Ringebu in the south to Dovre in the north. The Rondane Mountain Massif towers over wide and lichen-covered mountain plateaus, and is home to one of Europe’s last wild reindeer populations.

Welcome to Rondane, take care of nature

Help us take care of nature – advice and rules for visitors

Cycling on regular bikes in Rondane National Park is regulated in the interests of other users, and to avoid terrain erosion and the disruption of wildlife. Cycling in the national park is prohibited, with just a few exceptions. Link to advice and rules for visitors.

The use of motorized vehicles is prohibited in the national park, but is permitted along roads in the protected landscapes during certain periods of the year. E-bikes are defined as motorized vehicles.

Not all parts of Rondane have cell phone coverage. A good piece of advice is to download the cell phone coverage map for your mobile network before you set off on a trip.

All dogs must be kept on a leash between 1 March and 20 August. Pay attention to local rules and always check the regulations of the municipality in question.

You are allowed to pick berries, mushrooms and common plants for personal use.

You are permitted to pitch your tent wherever you want, as long as it is at least 150 meters away from inhabited houses or cabins. In the interests of wildlife and vegetation, we recommend you pitch your tents in close proximity to tourist cabins.

Make sure you don’t leave any garbage behind. Bring a small spade in your backpack so you can dig yourself a small toilet hole – not leaving any traces of toilet visits is a lot nicer both for you and for those visiting the area after you.

Cultural monuments such as the remnants of old houses, trapping sites and cairns are protected. Do not move stones from old walls.

Visitors are permitted to light campfires between 15 September and 15 April. You are allowed to light campfires throughout the entire year in places where there are no obvious fire hazards or risk of forest fires, but please pay attention to local restrictions. Show consideration when collecting firewood.

You may hunt and fish in the national park but remember to buy a hunting/fishing license.

Clothing and equipment. The weather in the mountains can change very quickly, during both the summer and winter months. You are responsible for assessing the weather, traveling conditions, and your level of fitness and skills. You should always have windproof and waterproof outerwear, hats and mittens when hiking in the mountains. The same applies to maps and a compass. Apart from these items, you need to consider what is necessary in terms of the trip you have planned.
