The cabins in Jotunheimen

Many of the tourist cabins in Jotunheimen started with a combination of mountain farming and mountain tourism in the 1800s. This occurred around the same time as the first mountain pioneers arrived to climb the highest peaks in the area. The cabins were gradually extended, and today they provide a wide range of accommodation possibilities in the mountains. Most of the cabins provide a dining service, but guests have to organize their own food at the unserviced cabins. Besseggen was the first mountain hike that was organized for recreational use in 1874, and mountain hiking has developed from a sport that involved just a few people, to something that everyone can participate in.
