Oksskolten 1916 masl

Climb Northern-Norway's highest mountain this summer. A long daytrip that includes 1500 vertical meters, glacier crossing and spectacular nature.

Oksskolten, standing at 1916 meters above sea level, is the highest mountain in Northern Norway! An impressive peak surrounded by Okstindbreen and a range of beautiful summits. To reach the top, the glacier must be crossed, and the journey to the summit is long. But the reward is a sense of achievement, joy, and if we're lucky, perhaps one of Norway's most stunning views. Our glaciers are often in precipitation-rich areas, so this journey is not feasible every day.

What can you expect?

This is a long and demanding hike that typically takes between 8-12 hours and involves around 1500 meters of elevation gain. Success requires having hiked several mountain trails in the same year and bringing plenty of food and drinks. Although it may be warm and pleasant when we start at the cars, it quickly becomes quite chilly at higher elevations. Therefore, you must dress warmly and bring extra layers. While in the area, it's recommended to spend a night camping at Kjennsvatnet or stay at the DNT cabin Kjennsvasshytta. It's advisable to pre-book to secure a spot.
