The 100 most Prominent Mountains in Southern Norway.

This list identifies and ranks the 100 mountains in Southern Norway with the largest prominence.
Prominence is called Primærfaktor (primary factor) in Norwegian.

Southern Norway is defined to be the part of Norway that would separate from Northern Norway if the ocean level would be 360 meter.
The lowest point between Kebnekaise in Sweden and Snøhetta in Norway, east of lake Tunnsjøen is 359 meter.
Thus, the border would run from Sweden to lake Tunnsjøen, along the river Tunnsjøelva to the river Namsen, then to the sea at the city of Namsos.
Using County borders (Fylkesgrenser), one would include all of Norway south of Nordland fylke.
With respect to the 100 most prominent mountains in Southern Norway, these two definitions produce the same list.

The prominence of a mountain is the minimal vertical drop from its summit before one can ascend a higher peak.

Confirmed or suspected corrections are most welcome by email to: petter@ii.uib.no

I appreciate that use of these data is acknowledged including a link to my main mountain page.

Two stars behind the rank means that I have climbed it (50/50, 100/100).
Note that entry no. 75 has two peaks, it is not known which is higher. One must climb both peaks.
