Each day brings one of the most classic peaks in Jotunheimen National Park, which also are the highest ones in Norway. This trip requires good physical condition and good skiing skills,
and that there are stable snow conditions. The first day we ski from Gjendesheim lodge to Memurubu lodge over peak Besshø. The second day we ski from Memurubu over the peak Surtingsui to
Glitterheim. The third day we try to ascent Norway’s second highest mountain Mt. Glittertind to Spiterstulen lodge. We have the three days "Jotunheimen Haute Route" on our web site this
year, but we also offer the five days variant upon request.

This could be the adventure you seek
You must have good skiing skills (able to ski controlled downward) and good physical condition. The ski tour can be organized with varying difficulty, but some steep slopes is unavoidable.
The snow conditions can be variable. We will ski on glaciers and in potentially dangerous avalanche terrain. This ski tour require up to 1700 meters ascent and up to 24 km every day.
Several daily stages requires good visibility and stable snow conditions to be implemented. The alternative then is marked routes in the valleys. We therefore strongly recommend
lightweight apine ski touring equipment.
