A delightful 20km hike climbing about 1000 blister inducing metres, give or take a few hundred. We took a fast boat across a lake to our starting point then along Cascade canyon with an obviously cascading river and with the snow covered Teton mountain range on either side.
That’s snow on and beside the trail
The mandatory panorama
Everyone would recognise that iconic Norway postcard of a brilliant blue/green fiord between snow covered mountains , well here it is. I hiked to the very spot today!
It’s known as the Flatbrehytta walk and is 9km long, which does not sound that much, but the elevation gain is 3140 feet – almost 1000m and is situated in the Jostedalsbreen National Park.
Again words cannot describe this unique hike in absolutely stunning weather conditions, so here follows a few pictures one of two of me again in basic black.
We are headed for the red cabin
And here is the view again from the cabin !
