"The finest ice-scenery in Europe", said the English mountaineer William Cecil Slingsby about the three wild ice-falls called Lokebreen, Odinbreen and Torsbreen which tumble down from the Jostedalsbreen glacier at the face of Austerdalsbreen. Here you can get just a taste of the wild glacier landscape without having to walk over the glacier itself.
Kyrakampen, 979 m above sea level, is north-west of Austlid Fjellstue. The summit offers incredible views of Skeikampen and parts of the Peer Gynt Mountain Road, plus Jotunheimen and Rondane further in the distance.
The terrain is easy, with a little climbing up a steep slope just at the beginning. The trail starts at Austlid Fjellstue and runs down towards the car park by the water.
Skeikampen, at 1,123 metres above sea level, is not one of Norway’s highest mountains, but it is easily accessible. It takes approx. 1 hour on foot to reach the summit. The trail takes you on a scenic route along the Skeikampen ridge. The view from the top is outstanding, a gigantic panorama of the nearby mountains and the Peer Gynt Road, Jotunheimen and Dovrefjell, the golf course and the area round Skeikampen. The trail is 6-7 km long and takes 2-4 hours. It is a scenic walk which most people can manage. If you choose to go for the summit, there is a steep 350-metre climb over a distance of 1.5 km.
Prestkampen is the highest peak at Skeikampen, at 1,244 m above sea level. From the summit there is a wonderful view of large areas of the Gausdal Valley and Peer Gynt’s Kingdom, and towards Rondane in the north and Jotunheimen in the northwest. This is a more demanding route. The walk is 12-16 km long and takes 4-6 hours depending on the choice of trails. It is a route for seasoned walkers and not recommended for small children or persons without walking experience.
