The beef scallion

Northern Norway's ceiling

Oksskolten rises in the Okstind massif between Korgen in the west, Spjeltfjelldalen in the east and Røssvatnet in the south. It has a height of 1,916 meters above sea level and is the highest mountain in northern Norway.

We start at Kjennsvatnet, about 1.5 hours' drive from Mo i Rana. The trip starts with a 1-1.5 hour hike with a good climb. We make our way to Auste Okstindbreen where we put on crampons, a harness and an ice ax and walk across the glacier in rope layers.

This is a lovely trip over the blue ice. The trip then continues on foot up to Oksskolten, Northern Norway's highest mountain, with its 1916 m.

You must be in good shape and able to be physically active for several hours.

Duration: approx. 7-10 hours starting from Kjennsvatnet.

Meeting at 09.00: Drive the construction road from Umskardet to Kjennsvatnet. Get off at the sign marked Leirbekkhaugen - Okstindan. Here we park the cars, greet and deliver equipment so that we can safely cross the glacier.


Along for the ride: Dress according to weather conditions. The weather can change quickly in the area. Windproof outerwear and a warm intermediate layer are a must. Gloves/mittens, hat/buff. Good hiking boots that go over the ankle. Daypack with space for your own equipment, harness, helmet, crampons and ice axe. Small seating surface. Plenty of food and drink. Band-aids, sunglasses and sunscreen.
