Memurubu - Surtningssui

Route info

Description

2368 metres a.s makes Surtningssui to no.7 in Norway. There are two different routes. The western follow Memurudalen with Surtningssubekken and is easy to walk. But when you have walked for about 3 kilometers it will be a bit harder. The stony terrain will appear and you also pass the small hut. From there it's flat to the top. The view is excellent and we think that you shouldn't miss this one.

The eastern route follow a more straight line but it's steeper then the western. Both alternative will fit together a bit down the small hut. Why not try them both, one way up and one way down?

Hiking time

7 hours (both ways)

Worth to know

A tent will be happy along Surtningssubekken before you reach the stony terrain.

The first climb was done by Johan Sverdrup in year 1840.
