Torfinnstindtraversen is one of the classics in Jotunheimen. It takes you across the mountain Torfinnstindane’s three peaks, all of which are over 2000 meters high. The journey across Eastern Tofinnstind (2120 meters), Middle Torfinnstind (2112 meters) and Western Torfinnstind (2095 meters), is demanding one. It takes you through four rappels (going downhill using ropes), and has several areas that require light – to somewhat tougher climbing (UIAA grade 1-2). Torfinnstindtraversen is therefore well suited for thrill seekers and sporty mountaineers, who like to take on a challenge.
The route offers spectacular panoramic views of Jotunheimen, which themselves as well worth the trip. In addition, you are guaranteed a sense of mastery unlike any other when having travelled across these three majestic giants. I mean – how many can say that they have in fact climbed three 2000-meter peaks in one single day?!
Torfinnstindane is located in the southern part of Jotunheimen, by the shores of lake Bygdin, in the municipality of Vang. You can access the area by catching the M/B Bitihorn ferry from Bygdin (the place), and hopping off at Torfinnsbu. From Torfinnsbu, the climb almost immediately starts up towards the first peak, Eastern Torfinnstind. From here you continue on over to Middle Torfinnstind, and then over to Western Torfinnstind, before you descend down and return to Torfinnsbu.
The duration of the trip across Torfinnstindstraversen may vary quite a bit, but it will likely take from 9 to 12 hours to complete.
Glacier Hike to Uranostind
- Difficulty: Challenging
- Duration: 6 hours
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.
Glacier Hike to Falketinden
- Difficulty: Demanding
- Distance: 13 kilometers (Out and back)
- Elevation Gain: 1000 meters
- Duration: 12 hours
- Audience: Experienced hiker
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.
