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!
