All products in our adventure portfolio is about experiencing nature, having fun, and solving challenges. It also mean you will experience lots of different activities within a short time. However, here is less time for practice so you will not learn enough to do this yourself without a guide. If you want to try many different things without using much time on practice, this is your thing.
Moderate: Short distances (4-8 km), moderate incline and less then 500 m climb per day. Activities rated as moderate are well suited for reasonably fit individuals, such as weekend walkers and cyclists. There can be the occasional more difficult day or parts of a day.
Challenging: More demanding distances (6-12 km), partly steep, regularly more than 500 m climb per day, occasionally between 1000 and 1500 m climb. These activities are physically challenging holidays, where you need to be prepared before you go.
Tough: Our toughest activities, involving long days and regularly steep or high climbs (more than 1000 m). A high level of fitness and previous wilderness and mountain experience is essential.
Glacier and summit adventure is an activity that combines the best of the glacier with a real summit. The blue ice part includes walking between crevasses and ice walls and some climbing. The summit day can you can choose between a rewarding trip over the glacier to Storebjørn (Big Bear, 2222 m) or an easier trip to the Norway’s highest mountain (Galdhøpiggen, 2469 m).
Storebjørn (Big Bear, 2222 m). The trip starts from the camp and crosses two glaciers, Leirbreen and Bjørnebreen (Bear glacier). This summit has glacier and crevasses all the way to the top, with a beautiful view to the surroundings. We rarely meet other people in this trip.
Galdhøpiggen (2469 m). First, we need to drive to Juvasshytta at 1800 m. Then we cross Styggebreen (The ugly glacier) to reach the foot of the mountain. From here we climb and scramble up to the top. Needless to say, the view from here is the best you can have over mountains and glaciers in Jotunheimen. But we will not be here alone, lots of people follow the guided tours or comes from the other side.
Do you want somewhere else? Just ask. If it is close by and suitable difficulty we will try to do as you want to.
Certified guides, as always. Also, this activity includes hire of glacier equipment (helmet, harness, ice axe, crampons, ice screws, carabiners, ropes).
