Høvringen is a mountain village in the western part of Rondane, 1000 meters above sea level. Høvringen was previously one of Norway's largest communities of mountain farms, with more than 30 farms operating in the area at its peak. Today the village's main industry is tourism, and there are a number of cabins and hotels at Høvringen. Rondane National Park reaches the very edge of the village and is a natural place for walks and hikes for Høvringen's many visitors.
