Gangsastoppen Hiking Trails, Harstad, Troms, Norway 

This tour goes in mountain terrain at 1,173-1,883 metres above sea level. Gaustatoppen towers majestically above the town of Rjukan at an altitude of 1,883 metres. For 200 years people have climbed to the top, where you can see one sixth of Norway from the peak.

You can buy a cup of coffee, waffles and food at the Tourist Association’s 100-year-old stone cabin on the summit. You can pick your own stone from the piles around the summit and get it stamped to prove that you climbed the mountain.

The trail is well marked with red T’s all the way up and it takes most people about two hours to reach the summit and a little less on the way down. You might find stones with wave patterns, from when the mountain was at the bottom of a long lost ocean.
