Most people choose to walk Besseggen from Memurubu to Gjendesheim. You get the best start for a mountain walk on board on our boats. We have up to 8 departures a day from the quay at Gjendesheim to Memurubu (Besseggen) and Gjendebu. There are two return departures from Gjendebu. As well as the scheduled departures, we set up a number of additional trips. Read "Some practical information" before you come, to find out how things work here.
We work with the lodges and activity providers to put together good packages, and we are always happy to tailor the best mountain experiences for companies, groups, teams, school classes, institutions and others.
Afraid you might miss the boat? Relax, we have up to 8 departures a day? You can easily search for all our departures here, so you have time for both a walk and dinner.SHOW TIMETABLE
Gjende lies 984 metres above sea level and has peaks of more than 2,000 metres on all sides. Barely an hour by boat from the car park at Gjendesheim, you have Jotunheimen National Park and many fantastic walks before your feet.

The weather is very often better than the forecast on yr.no :-) Welcome for a great walk!
Ever since Ole Øvstedal set out on his first trip on 1 July 1906, there has always been an Øvstedal at the wheel of the Gjende boats. Harald, the present skipper, is fourth generation, and you might see the fifth generation running along by the quayside. You can get to know the family, the boats and the employees a little better here.
