Besseggen, (or Besseggi as it is also called) is a mountain ridge between the lakes of Gjende and Bessvatnet. This hike is a classic among Norwegians, and around 60,000 people make the trip across the green water of Gjende each year.
You can choose whether to start the hike from Memurubu on one end or Gjendeosen on the other. The hike takes approx. 6-8 hours. Winds can be strong up on the mountain, so bring warm clothing. Remember to bring a map and compass, a fully charged mobile phone, a first-aid kit and a headlamp.
