GLACIER HIKES, LOM

GLACIER HIKES, LOM

Glaciers are an invitation to experience a wonderful world of blue ice and snow, surmounting icy towers and deep crevasses. The glacier Smørstabbreen is located in the Jotunheimen National Park, 1600 m (5,120 ft) above sea level and is approximately 45 minutes light walking from the main road. The glacier is ringed by mountains which are more than 2000 m (6,400 ft) high.

Lom is a thriving village amidst mountains and glaciers, the best-known of which are Galdhoppingen and Glitterind. 90% of the Lom region lies higher than 900 m a.s.l., where farming is impossible, so the mountains with their various kinds of stone and, nowadays, tourism have been their main source of income.
