This happens at Bessheim
Most people who visit Bessheim and Jotunheimen come to hike or go skiing, and many come for an enjoyable food experience, but there are also many other things to do here all year. For example, guided tours, rafting at Sjoa, Dog mushing, climbing, bicycling, visiting Glittersjå mountain lodge or one of our fine churches, and so on! During Easter and autumn break we offer an extensive program with lectures, guided tours and a lot of great food.
In the mountain area around us the reindeer belonging to Vågå Tamrein AS roam free. This company belongs to the people from Vågå municipality. They have herd of reindeer who give birth in the spring, and four full time reindeer herders. Ola and Tom who you might have seen on the norwegian television show “Gjeterar i Jotunheimen” on NRK, run the company Jotunheimen Rein. They take guests on tours, sledging, and to see the reindeer herds when possible during the year. For more information visit their Facebook page.
