This extremely challenging climb begins in Galdbygde on the Bovra River and ends at the Juvasshytta Lodge near the shores of Juvvatnet. While a bit of a treck to get to (350 kilometers and 5 hours from Oslo), it is worth the drive and as with all Norwegian climbs, the drive to it is peaceful, rural and scenic.
