Summit hike in Jotunheimen

A blue ice walk with ascent of the mountain Kalven in Jotunheimen. We do a tour through crevasses and blue ice in the glacier fall of Bøverbreen on our way to the airy peak. Approximately 650 height metres from our start from Sognefjellshytta (at 1415 metres) makes this a quite accessible adventure with great variation: blue ice, white glacier and an exposed ridge to the top.
