Jonstein, 1344 m – this trip is weather contingent.
Jonstein Mountain can be seen from all around, which means that the view from the top is spectacular. We head out from Botsvatn and the Sherpa stairs on the same path as Bufærveien, but then we venture on unmarked "paths" to the very top of Jonstein. We go back down, following the marked path and the access road back to the starting point.
This hike takes 3-4 hours and requires experience, proper equipment, mountain boots, clothes and preferably walking poles.
To ensure our customers have the best experience, we only offer private tours that are tailored to your group's wishes, needs and fitness.
Your guide speaks English.
