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.

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.

Climbed Galdhopiggen from Spiterstulen in early October on a beautifully clear sunny day. However, it had snowed a couple of days before hand, with some sections near the top being almost waist deep at some points! T markers (which mark the path from bottom to...More

This is one of Norways most accessible destinations and also the highest mountain. You can get to both of the most popular starting points by car or bus from the small town of Lom. The shortest route from Juvashytte is also a guided hike with...More

Go early because this is a popular destination with both tourists and locals. It is quite a hike and you'll need to 'rope-up' for safety to cross the glacier. There is now a hut at the top for food/drink which is quite welcome.

When the weather is good, this is an excellent trip. *We used approx. 6-7 hours from Spiterstulen (good place to start from). Down we skidded on plastic bags for a while on a glacier.

Great weather, good guides and the Norwegian army's Hercules flyby at the top really made this a wonderfult hiking day. The view is absolutely magnificent!

Equally challenging and fun, guides take you through 3 stages. The first is longer and over rocks, then one over the glacier, and the final (by far the toughest) up over snow and rocks. This is fought but there were kids also going up when...More

Hi IronMaiden69, thanks for your review. Im headed to Lom soon (by bus) and want to get to the national park and was planning on hitching down - do you think this is possible? Like you, have very little desire to pay £100 for a car and there seems to be no buses going down.

will we need crampons in late June for the northern summit approach and if so can they be obtained for a day rate in the area?
