Spiterstulen lies 1100 m.a.s.l. at the forest border in the beautiful valley of Visdalen in Lom municipality in Jotunheimen. This is a popular starting point for trips to Galdhøpiggen.

The trip from Spiterstulen to Galdhøpiggen can be done both with and without a guide, and there are several route options. The most common route is not crossing the glacier, and it is easy to follow the well marked path.

If you want to go to Galdhøpiggen by crossing the glacier, this is a longer, but much more exciting route to the summit of Galdhøpiggen, 2469 meters above sea level.

This round trip is 13 km. long, with an increase of 1350 vertical meters. The trip usually takes between 7 - 9 hours. 

The route includes a spectacular glacier crossing and steep, but easy scrambling up the south face of Galdhøpiggen. We follow the normal route down to Spiterstulen. It is a demanding trip suited for fit youths and adults.

- 1350 meters of altitude gain
- 12 kilometers in total
