Duration: 6-7 hrs
Nautgardstinden is a quite long tour however the view on the top is spectacular and the tour itself is pretty easy. The last 200 meters are steep and can be exposed to wind. Bring your ice ax and crampons if you have on hard snow conditions. Otherwise, the east-ridge is a nice opportunity to climb up.
Duration: 7-8 hrs
Medium demanding summit hike in an idyllic and varied mountain landscape with magnificent views to Jotunheimen. Easy access from Beitostølen. You can either go straight to the summit on the vest-edge or as I did on this trip make a tour towards the clock.
Rasletind is an easily accessible summit trip from Valdresflya. The trip can be done on both cross-country skis and mountain skis but is perhaps best suited for light randonee equipment. Here you can ski out in June and it is a nice trip with few steep slopes.
The trip takes between 4 and 6 hours round trip
There are several options up, but the most common track choice is to follow the ridge from the north and west.
From the top, you can look out over large parts of Jotunheimen, and for those who want to pick more peaks, you can take up to 10 different 2000-meter peaks from Rasletind relatively easily by following the ridge westwards.
Duration: 2-3 hrs
Synshorn is a nice and easy trip that is suitable for the whole family. At the same time it can offer good and exciting skiing for the more experienced skiers. If you want to extend the trip, you can take Fagerdalshøe and Mefjellet on the same trip.
Høgdebrotet & Tjønnholstinden
Duration: 1 day+
Høgdebrotet itself is a great skitour from Valdresflya. You park at the road close to Knutshøe and the peak is easy to climb. I added a couple of two other 2000-meters called Steinflytinden and Tjønnholstinden on my way down which both are quite steep and edgy. A rope, axe, and crampons can be nice to bring on this ridge.
