Can you give some route descriptions in Jotunheimen with costs etc?
Answer: One nice trip is to start with Glittertind (Norways heighest glacier-mountain 2470m) and then continue with Galdhöpiggen (Norways heighest mountain 2469m)and then back to Gjendesheim via Besseggen (Norways most popular trip, fabulus view with lakes on both sides). We walked this trip and we think that you will need at least 6 days for this trip.
We calculate that you will reach Glitterheim day 1 (the map says that the trip will take 7 hours, effective time).
The second day you climb Glittertind and finnish in Spitterstulen. The mountain is easy to climp (about 7 hours) so you don't need any special equipment except warm clothes.
The third day you climp Galdhöpiggen and this will take about 7 hours. This is a little bit tougher than Glittertind so you will be tired after this day. But when you are back in Spiterstulen you can relax with a bath in the swimming pool and have a beer (or several?) in the bar.
The fourth day you should walk to Gjendebu. The map says that this will take about 8 hours but this will take more so calculate that you don't reach Gjendebu this day so camp one hour or two from Gjendebu.
The fifth day (rest day!) you walk the rest to Gjendebu and then by boat to Memurubu. The rest of the day is "recharging of batteries".
The six day is time for Besseggen, Norways most popular route. We think that this will take about six hours and is worth every minute.
General info: The terrain is rocky with small and bigger stones. Good footwear is nesessary. If you sleep in lodges, this will cost you between 100-175 Norwegian kr. This depends if you sleep on the floor or in beds. Food is excluded but you can buy food in every lodge, but it's rather expensive.
