Norway. Hurrungane.

Description 

Hurrungane is an important site for alpine and mountaineering in Norway. The 3rd highest mountain in Norway, Store Skagastølstind (2405moh), forms the natural highpoint in this relatively small area with a very high density of alpine >2000meter peaks.

Getting There 

Easiest accessed by the RV55, 30min east of Skjolden, or west from Lom. RV55 is closed in the winter. Many use Turtagrø Hotel as a base camp for trips to Hurrungane.

Approaches can be long.
