  • Bit challenging hike for legs, but nothing difficult if you are experienced.
  • As with all other hikes in Jotunheimen, the view is really stunning. That being said, this hike isn't the best you'll find. Though the walk is nice, it's a bit over on the boring side. The payoff at the end is quite good though, you'll see the entire mountain range!
