Spiterstulen - Galdhöpiggen

Route info

Description

2469 metres a.s and therefore Norwegians highest mountain. From Spiterstulen you walk uphill in a never ending path. After the Keilhaus peak you can rest some metres. Then you have the last steep hill in snow up to the lodge.

At the top you can get a cup of coffee in the nice cabin and have a look at the lovely landscape. Galdhöpiggen is like Besseggen also very popular. The way back should be familiar to you because it's the same when you walked uphill.

Hiking time

6 hour (both ways)

Worth to know

If you are a real mountaineer it's natural to put up a tent near the peak but otherwise we recommend outside Spiterstulen.

In 1850 this peak was climbed by J.Arnesen, J.Flaaten och Steinar Sulheim.
