Galdhøpiggen is Norway’s highest peak at 2,439 metres above sea level.

You can go up in two ways. The easier one, where you don’t have to cross the glacier, starts at the Spiterstulen hiking base (61.62464,8.403084), this route can be done at your own discretion by anyone who can walk for 6-8 hours with an elevation gain of 1,300 metres.

The second option starts in Juvasshytta and this leads over the glacier. With this option, you need to go with a mountain guide, because you don’t want to end your journey through Norway stuck in a glacial crevasse.

There is a mountain hut at the top where you can usually buy a little something to eat, but don’t expect to find toilets there.
