Juvasshytta is one of the two main mountainlodges for climbers, hikers and glacierwalkers that want to climb Norways highest mountain - Galdhopiggen - which is 2469 metres above sealevel. The facilities have both seperate rooms and dorm halls and offer a great view over the mountain landscape. The standard is somewhat basic and I guess ideal for the sporty kind of type. If you want a luxury hotel - look at some of my other tips.

Galdhopiggen is a great climb which can be performed by everybody that are in reasonably good health. Organized trips are held every day and take 6 hours - give and take the condition of each single individual.

For the sportyminded - next to Juvasshytta is a summeropen slalom and snowboard piste. If you just have an urge to go skiing during summer - here you can do it! Nearby there's also an area which is popular amongst hanggliders, parachuters, paragliders and you name it. They jump of the cliffs and just dive down the valley - quite awsome to watch!

Unique Qualities: You are at the top of the world surrounded by clean air, nothing but nature and lots of reindeer actually - and plenty of sports activities at your hand!
