You are invited to join us on an excursion to Rabothytta, one of Norway’s most impressive cabins. Given its dramatic location, perched at the edge of Okstindbreen glacier at 1200 metres altitude, and its elegant architecture, it is no wonder that this is one of Helgeland’s favourite hiking destinations. On clear days your panorama includes several legendary mountains on the Helgeland coast.
Rabothytta is named after Charles Rabot, the 19th-century French explorer who became enchanted by the Norwegian mountain wilderness. This guided ski trip with Hi North follows in his footsteps, and lets you experience the beauty of the Okstindan range and the magnificent Okstindbreen glacier, just as Rabot did.
Okstindan has eleven peaks, of which the highest is Oksskolten at 1916 metres. The peaks and glaciers combine to create an exotic landscape. It’s easy to see why this is paradise for eager hikers, locals as well as travellers from many other countries.
Once we arrive at Rabothytta, we’ll light a fire and enjoy a good meal in the warmth of the cabin. Here you can enjoy the silence and the great view of the surrounding mountains. The cabin has room for up to 30 people, and with six bedrooms and a loft, there is more than enough space.
Our return trip follows the same route, but with an opportunity for a detour across the glacier itself! The return route’s 750-metre descent is gentle, giving you time to appreciate the astounding beauty of the surrounding landscape.
