Falketind

The discovery of Falketind is considered “the awakening of Jotunheimen”, as people became aware of the real potential and all the breadth of opportunities in the area. It is probably the most demanding, and at the same time best tour in Jotunheimen!

Falketind was first ascended in 1820 and was the first mountain of “alpine character ” to be climbed in Norway. This discovery is considered “the awakening of Jotunheimen”, as people became aware of the real potential and all the breadth of opportunities in the area. It is probably the most demanding, and at the same time best tour in Jotunheimen! A wonderful tour including crossing a glacier on the way up to the 2067 meter high peak. The last part is very steep and will require some crawling. The view from the peak is breathtaking, and the route in itself is as well scenic. The tour is guided by our certified and experienced guides.

The hike is demanding and suitable only for experienced hikers in good physical condition. You will be accompanied by an experienced guide that knows the area and that will make sure you have the best experience possible. The weather at high altitudes in Norway can change quickly, and a snowstorm can happen every month of the year.
