Norway's Major Mountains are defined
as mountains with primary factor (or prominence)
of at least 600 meter. There are close to 600 such mountains.
5 peaks are located on the border to Sweden.
Only peaks related to the Norwegian main land are listed here, the Arctic and Antarctic peaks are listed under Svalbard.
(Norway has more than 13000 mountains with prominence of at least 100m.)
These mountains are "perfect" hiking/climbing goals. The view from their summits is always breathtaking.
The lists below can be used to "collect summits", go after the "Finest" in the county (Fylke) where you live,
or expand your hiking to a larger part of Norway.
The primary factor (prominence) of a mountain is the minimal vertical drop from its summit before one can ascend a higher peak.
The lists broken down per County (Fylke) are complete down to 600 meter.
