Overview
More
Galdhopiggen is the highest mountain in Norway, 2.469 m.a.s.l. It is also one of the most visited peaks in the country, apart from some hills in more densely populated areas. The hight is fascinating, and Galdhopiggen is also relatively easy to reach. You can follow the normal t-marked route from Spiterstulen 1.103 m.a.s.l., four hours to the top, two and a half- three hours back down.

To be honest, our trip was great, but quite hard to climb if the weather conditions are not good. Our trip lasts 8 hours (both ways). It's important to have hiking equipment - boots, walking crampons, hiking sticks(telescopic), gloves. It's also important to have jacket,...More

To be honest, I’ve renamed this hike in my mind as ‘Piggen Awful.’ I love the mountains and we have hiked all of our lives but found the glacier route from the Juvasshytta an unenjoyable hike. In addition, the summit view was just not ‘wow’...More

Hiking the highest mountain in Norway is a classic route and a must for those able. We went from Juvasshytta on an organised trip with guide at 10.00 in the morning. Do not cross the glacier on your own. It takes about 1 hour to...More

We went to Galdhopiggen 3 years in a row during June for skiing. All days it was stormy, snowing, raining and in the valley it could be +25C. Amazing differences.

Beautiful mountain with spectacular views. You can see perfectly white glaciers and beautiful mountains. The only difficult thing is to catch nice weather.
