OKSTINDAN – HIKING ON THE “ROOF” OF NORTHERN NORWAY

  • Sentrumsveien 17, Korgen
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The Okstindan mountain range and its ruling summit Oksskolten, the highest mountain in Northern Norway, are situated in Hemnes. Hemnes municipality offers a magnificent wilderness and pristine mountains a mere stone’s throw from lush farms and villages. Glacier arms stretch in every compass direction, and the surrounding area is dotted with beautiful lakes large and small. There are several gateways to Okstindan, and four DNT cabins are available to hikers.

FOUR GREAT CABINS IN THE OKSTINDAN MOUNTAINS

Rabothytta, also known as DNT Cabin No. 500, is situated at 1200 metres on the very edge of the glacier. The cabin accommodates 30 overnight guests and is self-service, with occasional staff in the summer. Kjensvasshytta, situated near the trailhead to Oksskolten, the highest peak in Northern Norway, offers 28 beds. In the summer, you can drive all the way up and park by the cabin, which is now being refurbished with facilities for disabled guests. Gråfjellhytta and Gressvasshytta cabins have 12 and 20 beds respectively. All four cabins are self-service and fully equipped, but hikers must bring their own food and a sleeping bag or sheet bag. At least one person in the group must be a member of DNT and have a DNT key. For further information, see www.htf.dnt.no / www.rabothytta.dnt.no (mainly in Norwegian)
