Trip advice

Ålfotbreen Protected Landscape is an area with a lot of variation. There are many areas and trails in the lowlands that are suitable for everyone. However, the high mountains are really a place for the more experienced hiker. The terrain is challenging and the weather changes very quickly!

· Remember to bring extra equipment and food so that you are prepared if bad weather sets in.

· Always tell someone where you are going. You can’t always rely on there being cell phone coverage everywhere in the mountains.

· Keep your eye out for glacial crevasses and snow bridges when crossing glaciers or snowdrifts.
