near Bøverkinnhalsen, Oppland (Norway)
a week in the wild
how long did you take to cover this distance? did you need any special equipment to cover ice fields?
he mentioned that it took a week. sounds reasonable.
i too am interested in the crossing icefields question.
This took 5 days (4 nights), but we used a tent (otherwise chosse a different path from Skogdalsboen to Gjendebu).
Crossing Ice fields is only recommanded on marked trails of DNT, and there you'll usually find either a guide that will bring cramps to cross with (like in this patch going up to fannarakhytta - only on high season), or some ropes attached.
In this patch, almost everyday around noon there is a guide waiting to take people up, or you can take a guide down from the hut. Contact DNT for more info.
