Catch the bus to Fagernes

Fagernes is both a town and a bus hub in Valdres. You can easily get to and from here by bus.

If you take the bus to Fagernes, it stops at the bus station where also the Valdres Tourist Office is located. Here, you will find people who are familiar with both Valdres and Jotunheimen, so it might be worthwhile to stop by and get some good hiking tips.

If you choose to camp at Fagernes Camping, it is a perfect starting point for hiking, cycling, or canoeing trips.

If you arrive in Fagernes on a late summer day, you might wonder why there are so many trees with berries in the center. These are planted to attract flocks of waxwings and thrushes in late autumn and early winter. From the bridges over the river Neselva, the dipper can be easily observed, and the spring migration on Storøya has a lively atmosphere in early summer with a diverse range of nesting birds in buildings and trees around the Valdres Folk Museum.

For lovers of fermented fish, a trip to Fagernes on the first weekend in November is a must, as the Rakfiskfestivalen is held. The Rakfisk Festival is a popular event with around 100 local food exhibitors and several tons of rakfisk, tasting tents, the selection of the year's rakfisk, and numerous sales stalls.
