Best of Lom

Top itineraries and travel advice in and around Lom
Gateway to spectacular mountain scenery, Lom has a storied past that dates back to the Old Norse Sagas. The 11th-century Lom Stavkyrkje, an elaborately carved Norman-style Stave church, looms high over the village, while the steep surrounding hills and churning rapids of the Bøvra River set the stage for memorable outdoor adventures. Lom’s biggest draw is Jotunheimen National Park, an adventurer’s playground just south of town.

Previous kimkim travelers have immersed themselves in the mystique of Lom on guided walks through the village center. You can gain insight into Norwegian traditions and folklore on a visit to the Lom Bygdamuseum, with its collection of 19th-century farm buildings, as well as a weathered hut where St Olav allegedly slept. The towering peaks of Jotunheimen are a siren song for nature lovers. Customized guided walking tours take you to thundering waterfalls, glaciers and wildflower-filled valleys amid Norway’s highest mountain range.
