Price: $39.95


Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description

2005. 72 pp, 100's of color photos, many color maps. The Hurrungane are the most spectacular mountains in Norway. James Baxter's book is a long-awaited English guidebook to these mountains. With detailed route descriptions, alternatives and notes on winter (ski) ascents it is the definitive book to these mountains. Anyone planning a trip to these mountains west of Jotunheimen should not be without a copy!


Each route description is illustrated with a map and superb colour photographs. The routes are graded and give guidance on whether glacier equipment is needed, whether it is feasible in bad weather and if a winter ski ascent is practicable.

The book also gives some good information on other aspects of the Norwegian mountains: from a detailed section on flora and fauna, to an Appendix listing all the Scandinavian 2000m peaks.
