Jotunheimen National Park was established in and is the most mountainous landscape in Norway. Are you ready for hiking in lush valleys.

Uranostind rises majestically in the Southern part of Jotunheimen, and is the highest summit on a several kilometre-long and sharp mountain ridge.

The views from such an isolated and dominating summit are spectacular and unique; the hike offers views over the entire Jotunheimen, including Hurungane in the West, Uradalen in the North. The glacier is situated close to the main water divide and has a character of something between the maritime glaciers further west and the more continental ones in East-Jotunheimen.
