Getting Here and Around
From Oslo take the E18 northwest to Fagernes, and then Route 51 to Beitostølen. From there you can follow the scenic Valdresflya, which has wonderful views over the eastern part of Jotunheimen and the Besseggen Ridge. From Beitostølen to Lom is 140 km (87 mi). Route 55 between Lom and Gaupa is known as Sognefjellet, and is a popular National Tourist Road. It crosses the Jotunheimen and again, offers breathtaking scenery through the massif. It can be closed in bad weather, though, particularly in winter, so check before traveling. The bus company JVB TUR serves Jotunheimen and Valdres. Nor-Way express buses link Oslo and Lom four times daily; the trip takes 6½ hours. There is no train station in Lom; head to nearby Otta instead. There are several departures daily from there to Oslo.
