Rondane is a mountain massif in Central Norway, lying between the two major valley of Gudbrandsdalen and Østerdalen. In 1962 a large area of this area, nearly 600 km², was designated a national park, Norway's first.
The national park was partly set up to protect the fragile environment of Rondane which due to a dearth of soil nutrients supports a limited but unique vegetation. This sparse vegetation has not conducive to domestic grazing there is little history of summer pastoralism in Rondane. This has enabled the native wild herd of reindeer to survive better here than in other area.
