The glacier does not only move mountains, you will be moved as well. To be surrounded by crevasses of thousand year old ice with its infinite shades of blue makes it a place for discoveries.
During this trip we’ll work on exercises to give you the information needed to be able to safely navigate on a glacier, which will include everything from choosing the safest route, how to walk alongside a crevasse, when to use ice screws to knowing what to do if someone would fall into a crack.
It’ll be an adventure to remember and you will return home with a huge amount of new knowledge.
Jotunheimen nationalpark contains all of Norways 2300 meters peaks, which explains quite a lot about its name as it means The Home of the Giants in Norwegian, which says a great deal about the character of the area. This is the most alpine area of Norway and our adventure begins here, a unique experience you will not soon forget.
The possibilities for your stay are a bit fewer here but there are a couple of nice hotels and cottages in the area. If you want you can stay in tents, but please note that you will need your own sleeping bag and camping mattress.
I will provide you with all the equipment needed but you must have suitable clothing and boots for glacier, this means that you must be able to attach crampons on the sole and think warm. You will spend a hole day on ice.
