Join our guides to Mt Lodalskåpa
Lodalskåpa, aka “The Vestland queen”, is the highest summit on Jostedals Glacier. This can be a demanding trip for those who want to set foot on the summit but the spectacular and exciting nature of this trip far out weight the efforts.
The trip starts at the idyllic Bødalssetra, one of the most famous trailhead for trips on Jostedalsbreen. Once on the summit, you will have a 360° view, where you can look down towards Jostedal in Sogn, the crevasses in Småttene and the western reaches of the Jostedal glacier.
This trip is a classic in the area and the experience of a lifetime for many with 3 glaciers to cross before the final climb and Bratta-bakken (a 700 vertical meters climb in one go). During the last push to the summit, you will have the possibility to secure yourself with ropes if we think the scrambling are a little bit to demanding. A trip that got everything; vertical meters, long streches, glaciers, easy scrambling and the feeling of standing on the roof of Norway.
