Haute Route Jotunheimen

  • +47 41146070
  •  /  km From You

Travel between cabins in Jotunheimen while summiting classical 2000 meter high peaks!

This trip was done by Stian Hagen and friends during the spring of 2013. Bre og fjell are now offering to guide you along the same spectacular trip, visiting the very best of Norway’s alpine terrain, including Galdhøpiggen, in a way that seldom has been done in the earlier days. We will summit at least one peak above 2000 meters every day. Hence, the trip requires good physical shape, proper skills on alpine skis and stable snow condition.


We meet at 7 pm at the Gjendesheim cabin. The evening will be spent on getting to know each other and make detailed plans for the trip. Note: All your gear must be fully prepared and functional at this point. There will be no chance for last minute shopping at Gjendesheim.

Jotunheimen Haute Route day by day

Day 1
Gjendesheim / Bessheim to Memurubu. In total ca 19 km 1300 meters ascent. The route follows a marked winter trail from Gjendesheim to Glitterheim to the east end of Bessvatn. From here we follow the ridge to Mt.Bukkehøe and further up to the top of Mt.Besshø. We ski down the west couloir or the west ridge if there is unstable snow. If really unstable snow we walk directly over Gjende to Memurubu along a marked trail.

Day 2

Memurubu to Glitterheim. In total ca 24 km 1600 meters ascent. The route follows a summer trail over Mt.Raudhamarn to the top of Mt.Store Surtnigssue (Norwegian 7th highest mountain.) This is a long day with a lot of ascension and partly long transports.

Day 3

Over Norway’s second highest mountain – Mt.Glittertind 1100 meters ascent from Glitterheim. In total ca 17 km 1100 meters ascent. A long uphill and even longer downhill, possibly over Skautkampen if we can bear, before heading down to the valley Visdalen and Spiterstulen where we stay overnight.

Day 4

If weather is good and out shape dictate, this day we try to ascend Mt.Galdhøpiggen, the highest mountain in Norway, in addition we ski up to three other beautiful mountains. The shortest alternative is in total ca 19km 1600 meters ascent. On the way up we follow the route made for «Galdhøpiggrennet» up to Keilhaus top, and then we continue over the glacier Piggbreen to the main top. Here we remove the skins and ski along the ridge back a piece before we drive north down to the Gate, a drain passage that takes us down to the glacier Storjuvbreen. Then over Illåbåndet to the glacier Northern Illåbreen, Tverråbreen and Bukkeholsbreen to the valley Visdalen. The alternative is to go directly to Bukkeholsbandet from Spiterstulen.

Day 5

The last day goes through the glacier massif Smørstabbren. We go up to Bjørnbreen Glacier and ascent Mt.Storebjørn before we go back to Sognefjellsroad for pickup with bus. In total ca 15km 1200 meters ascent


If the weather and/or snow conditions is bad, or any participants have problems, it is possible to choose to go all or part of the stages along marked ski trails in the valleys or alternative routes.
