A hike to Rabothytta cabin
Rabothytta cabin opened in 2014. It is situated at 1200 metres altitude in Okstindan, a mountain range that includes eleven of the highest peaks in Northern Norway – the highest of which is Oksskolten (1916 m). The cabin is named after French geographer and glaciologist Charles Rabot (1856–1944). In 1883 he was one of the first to ascend Oksskolten.
A brisk hike from the parking lot takes you up to 600 metres and the eighth-largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland. The 5 km hike is moderately challenging and usually takes about two hours.
The drive from Fru Haugans Hotel takes approx 1 hour 15 minutes.
Day 1: Arrival at Fru Haugans Hotel where your room is waiting.
Day 2: After a hearty breakfast, you make your own sandwiches for a packed lunch, and fill your thermos with coffee or tea. At 9:00 we depart by car, heading north on highway E6 to Korgen (50 km), and then up to the parking lot in Leirskardalen. We return to the hotel around 18:00.
Dinner is served in one of the hotel restaurants. Afterwards, we invite you to explore the beautiful Hotel Gardens and take a stroll down Sjøgata, which has the largest concentrations of old wooden houses in Northern Norway.
