  • Reach the summit of the Store Svartdalspiggen mountain
  • Take in the beautiful flora and fauna of the areas you hike


Come with me on a hiking trip to the Store Svartdalspiggen in Norway. We’ll leave from the  Gjendesheim cabin and make our way to this beautiful mountain, nestled in the Jotunheimen Mountains that form part of the Scandinavian Mountains in southern Norway.

In order to get to our start point, we’ll take a ferry from Gjendesheim to Svartdalen. This is a stunning valley in the mountainous Jotunheimen area. We’ll explore this beautiful valley as we walk, taking in the beautiful scenery that surrounds us.

We’ll get great views of Store Svartdalspiggen as we walk upwards towards it. If weather permits, we’ll hike to the summit at 2,174 meters. This is an endurance test and a really fun hike. When we reach the top, we’ll stop for lunch and then we’ll really be able to appreciate the beauty of the valley around us.

If the weather is not great, we’ll choose another path to follow that is lower down. There are so many awesome hiking trails here so we’ll be spoiled for choice.

After a day of exploring, we’ll head to the dock again to take the ferry back to Gjendesheim.

This is a fantastic opportunity to access beautiful Norwegian mountainous terrain, don’t let it pass you by. Secure your spot today!

About the guide

With Gjende and Jotunheimen right here in my backyard, it's hard not to spend every waking hour outdoors.

Ever since I was a child, I have been drawn to the natural world. Years later, I still find myself standing in awe of the mountains of my native Norway. Regardless of the season, I work and play outside in the beautiful landscapes that surround me.

While I enjoy many outdoor sports and activities, I must say the mountain biking terrain here in Vågå is hard to beat.

I look forward to exploring my backyard with you on your next adventure!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
