Close your eyes and sense the mountains: over 2,000 metre-high summits in a singular landscape decked in blinding white snow, the rays of the low-hanging sun reflecting on the glittering snow, the bluish light. Tranquillity and quiet, and the knowledge that the sunny day can be transformed within moments to threatening stormy weather. This is when you get the feeling that Rondane is a place you must visit. Perhaps it is this feeling that has led so many artists and writers to derive inspiration from Rondane – and maybe this is why people return to Rondane again and again over generations. Like ancient giants the mountains stand at rest on the road that takes you alongside the Rondane national park.
Experiencing the slowly changing landscape with its towering mountains is very special – almost magical. Here you must find repose and let your impressions sink in. The bluish light will accompany you on your way. If you have the opportunity, you should stop at the curving Sohlbergplassen viewing platform at Atnsjøen. The atmosphere in Harald Sohlberg’s famous painting from 1914 “Winter’s Night in Rondane” is bewitching. The architect wanted to recreate this atmosphere and from Sohlbergplassen you can take in the view of Rondane from the same angle as portrayed in the painting.
