Uranostind 

The iconic Uranostind lies at 2,157 m.a.s.l. This demanding 10-11 hour hike is great for experienced hikers. The hike will take you past Urdadalsvannet on the way to Koldedalen. Once you reach the Glacier there will be a short change of equipment before the hike continues to Uraknatten and the climb to Uranostind. The trek takes you over crevasses, and you will do some easy climbing and then crawl out on the top ridge and admire the spectacular view from the summit. The weather at high altitudes in Norway can change quickly, and snowstorms can happen every month of the summer.

The hike is long, but the spectacular view at the summit is well worth the trip.

  • Difficulty: Demanding
  • Distance: 13 kilometers (Out and back)
  • Elevation Gain: 1000 meters

Falketind 

Falketind was first ascended in 1820 and was the first mountain of “alpine character ” to be climbed in Norway. This discovery is considered “the awakening of Jotunheimen”, as people became aware of the real potential and all the breadth of opportunities in the area. It is probably the most demanding, and at the same time best tour in Jotunheimen! A wonderful tour including crossing a glacier on the way up to the 2067 meter high peak. The last part is very steep and will require some crawling. The view from the peak is breathtaking, and the route in itself is as well scenic. The tour starts in Koldedalen and set off for a 12-13km hike to the peak. The tour is guided by our certified and experienced guides.
