About Urdvassberga

Urevassbotten is a good starting point for shorter ski touring trips. The ascent begins immediately and it's best to go up so that you reach the western end of Hestebotn. Then, hold course towards Jutulvatnet lake, and go eastwards towards the characteristic Urdvassnuten at 1753 m. above sea level. Here, you have an amazing view! If the part from Hestebotn and up is too steep for your taste, it's also nice to go westward to the highest peak in Urdvassberget at 1617 m. above sea level. Do not go ski touring without any knowledge about avalanches, and all necessary equipment, such as shovel, probe and tracker beacon and knowledge on how to operate the equipment!
