Galdhøpiggen - Juvasshytta

Ski resorts in Norway
North Europe’s most northerly located mountain hut is found in Norway and is called Juvasshytta. People often get it mixed up with the "Galdhøpiggen" summer skiing resort, which is situated just close by. Both are located high up on the mountain at an altitude of about 1,800 meters above sea level, at the Juv glacier at the foot of the Galdhøpiggen mountain, which is Norway’s highest mountain with a peak at almost 2,500 meters.

To experience Scandinavia’s best winter landscape, you should visit Galdhøpiggen’s ski center or Juvasshytta. Mountain hut Juvasshytta is a perfect starting point for a hike up the mountain. The ski center is relatively small with only one lift taking you to the top of the ski slopes.

The longest ski run is about one kilometer long and there is also a popular ski part with both rails and jumps. Juvasshytta is a great choice for when you want to experience a different type of mountain environment, both more intimate and more personal. What makes both Juvasshytta and Galdhøpiggen particularly popular is the fact that you can ski on powder even in June. Furthermore, the resort and the hut are quite easily accessible. The drive from Oslo takes five hours, and the bus stop is only a kilometer away from Juvasshytta if you come by bus.

The glaciers are popular training grounds for alpine teams during autumns.
Galdhøpiggen - Juvasshytta belong to Jotunheimen.
