  • Hiked to the summit from Spiterstulen. The path is well-marked, it's hard to miss. Start your trek early as there will be a constant flow of wanderers the whole day. Bring several liters of water...

  • Beautiful hike but with a lot of fogg and really not recommended to hike in those conditions due to risk of walking of the edge. We were really careful, looking for the red "T"-s that mark the route.....  more

  • The highest place in the Nordic countries is a great place to hike, about four hours uphill and during that time the weather can change many times. Upstairs cafe but bring your own lunch. Just a daypack is enough and you will be down much faster
  • Great mountain experience in Norway
