Gjendeosen is a busy meeting point at the gateway to Jotunheimen national park.

With its clear green water and surrounding peaks, Gjende is known as the most scenic lake in all of the Jotunheimen massif. At its western end lies Gjendebu lodge, on the northern shore Memurubu lodge and at the eastern end Gjendesheim lodge. During the summer season these three are linked by a boat service.
