Guided hike to Snøhetta - public tour Book
Sign up for a hike to the highest mountain of Dovrefjell national park!
Snøhetta is one of Norway's most famous mountains and given it's history many Norwegians
think it should have been chosen as Norway's national mountain. The hike goes from
Snøheim up to the big peak (2286 meters above sea level), and if weather permits we will
also hike to to the middle peak. Our guides are experienced hikers and offer good company,
local history of Snøhetta, life on Dovrefjell, geology, botany and information about wildlife
including muskox and reindeer. Coffee and a snack will be served. The trip is estimated to
last about 6-8 hours for people of moderate fitness. There is a lot of rocks on the hike so we
recommend good hiking boots with a stiff sole. The elevation is 800 meters and the total
distance is about 12 km. The maximum number of participants on the hike is 12.
