Uranostind

Glacier trip to Uranostind is an amazing adventure, perfect for the most adventurous and skilled hikers. Join our experienced guides and climb one of the most stunning peaks in Jotunheimen.

Uranostind (2,157 m.a.s.l.) is an iconic mountain in Jotunheimen, often referred to as the most beautiful peak in Jotunheimen. The characteristic summit is visible from afar, with its pointy peak and the glacier next to it. This is an exciting and versatile hike that will give you the full experience of hiking a Norwegian mountain and a glacier; after hiking, you will have to cross a glacier with crevasses, do some easy climbing and then crawl out on the top ridge and admire the spectacular view from the summit.

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 summer.

Uranostind lies in the Southern West part of Jotunheimen National Park, on the boarder of the municipalities of Luster i Årdal in Sogn og Fjordane, and Vang in Oppland.
