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. Want to walk the Besseggen ridge? Most people choose to walk Besseggen from Memurubu to Gjendesheim. We have up to 7 departures a day from the quay at Gjendesheim to Memurubu (Besseggen) and Gjendebu. There are two return departures from Gjendebu. Find your departure and book your ticket on our website!

This is the boat taking you along the green coloured Gjendevannet (the lake) to places like Memurubu and Gjendebu. Places ideal as starting points for hiking in Jotunheimen and crossing Besseggen. The boat can even just take your bags while you hike.
