Fron is a former municipality in Gudbrandsdal in Oppland, Norway.

It was created in 1837 as Fron formannskapsdistrikt, but in 1851 the municipality was split into Nord-Fron and Sør-Fron. They were reunited in 1966, during a nationwide municipality merging process, but split again in 1977.

There have been talks about reuniting the two municipalities, but the plans have not come into life due to unwillingness in Sør-Fron, the smaller of the two. Nord-Fron has instead made inquiries to merge with Sel.
