Discover abundant animal life
Tenlefjorden Lake

This round-trip hike takes you from birch forests to an untouched mountain landscape. This is an area with rich animal life, so you might spot reindeer or grouse. Tenlefjorden Lake is excellent for fishing, so remember to bring your fishing rod and buy a permit if you want to try your luck. 

Rounding the mountainside of Børrenøse, the trail reaches an elevation of 1,200 meters above sea level. Here excellent views of Jotunheimen await, with the pointed peak of Uranostind (2,157 m.a.s.l.) rising towards the air like an arrow.

The trail is well-marked and easy to follow all the way. The most challenging part is the descent from the mountainside of Børrenøse to the trailhead at Filefjellstuene.
