We welcome you to the Glitterheim Mountain Lodge, situated right below the second highest mountain in Norway - Glittertind. Many pekas higher than 2.000 meters above sea level and Scandinavias highest situated "wilderness platou" is surrounding the mountain hut.
Glitterheim is one of many huts in the DNT-system (The Norwegian Hiking Accosiation) and has more then 140 beds. The Vole familiy avaits you with traditional mountain meals. Welcome to a pleasant stay right in the middle of the Jotunheimen National park!
At 1400 meters elevation, Glitterheim has some of the highest peaks in Jotunheimen National Park right outside the door. Peaks like Glittertind, Nautgardstind, Memurutind and Trollsteineggen are goals for summit enthusiasts collecting two-thousanders. In summer, guiding for hikers is offered on the Veo Glacier, with optional guiding to the summits.
With a summit elevation of 2452 m, Glittertind is the second highest peak in Norway, just 17 m lower than Galdhøpiggen (2469 m) about 12 km to the southwest. But with its ice cap, it's actually three metres higher.
Local food is part of the experience:
The lodge serves local cuisine, based on local ingredients and traditions or on foods supplied by local vendors. DNT works with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food to promote local cuisines and traditions at the staffed lodges.

Glitterheim Mountain Lodge is part of the Jotunheimen Haute Route, and you can either use us as a pit stop on a longer trip, or stay here a few days.
