Description
Waypoints (0)

Norwegens höchster Berg thront über den umliegenden Gipfeln und bietet einen fantastischen Blick auf Jotunheimen. Von Spiterstulen aus ist es für Wanderer in guter Verfassung relativ einfach zu wandern. Die Tour ist jedoch ziemlich lang und Sie sollten ungefähr 9 Stunden Hin- und zurück einplanen. Von Spiterstulen aus nehmen Sie den Weg nach Westen den Hügel hinauf über den die Gipfel Svellnose und Keilhaus. Der schwierigste Teil ist das Gehen auf den Felsen - viele von ihnen sind locker, seien Sie also vorsichtig. Anspruchsvoller Höhenunterschied.

Super randonnée, ça monte un peu (beaucoup) mais nous somme des amateurs et on la fait en 5h aller et 2h30 pour le retour! Prévoir un pantalon de pluie pour glisser sur la neige! Vraiment top!

Fantastic peak experience, with views the entire way. Very difficult elevation gain, but no exposure or truly sketchy parts to the trail. It took experienced mountain hikers from Colorado, USA about 8 hours, but we took many breaks and we're taking our time.

Excellent hike with gorgeous views throughout. Highly recommend! Note that the distance may be slightly understated (have seen different estimates) and expect the hike to take close to 7 hrs round trip with only light breaks for experienced hikers if you go all the way to the hut at the summit. Likely longer for more casual hikers given the terrain.

We hiked Galdhøpiggen in August 2017. The weather was beautiful with sunshine and not a cloud in the sky with little to no wind. The temperature was in the 50’s. Crossing the glazier took about an hour and was awesome. The hardest part was walking on the rocks. Many of them were loose so one has to be careful with the footing. The view was spectacular.
