About Klimapark 2469
Up for a trip far into the ice? Enter the glacier in this hand caved ice tunnel by the foot of Galdhøpiggen. Filled with ice sculptures inspired by Norse mythology. A qualified guide will tell you about permafrost, faun, animals living in the highland and the ancient artifacts found in this area going back to the stone age. Arrows, shoes and hunting equipent – melted out from snow drifts in Jotunheimen – are displayed in the ice walls. The ice tunnel also has a cinema hall where you can see a movie of the making of the tunnel. The trip starts at the parking lot by Juvasshytta right next to Galdhøpiggen, and follows a kilometer-long footbridge to the ice tunnel. The tour is accessible for most people and nice for children in school age. After your visit in the ice tunnel, you can take a close look at the Juvbrean glacier. Dress warmly and get an experience for life!

Unfortunately we could not make it because the toll road is unsafe and not suitable for our motorhome or any larger vehicle. We were forced to comeback halfway. We call the operator to cancel our booking, but we received no refund or apologies. Despite calling them a number of time prior booking we had no warning nor any info about the toll road, which is poorly maintained and in my opinion dangerous. The customer service is defensive and hopeless. They surely been trained to point finger at customers or maybe suffer from lack of Oxygen.

We are sorry you could not make it all the way to the Climate park. There is information about the toll road on our webpage, and we have now included this information in the confirmation e-mail. We are sorry the information did not reach you before Your visist. Cars with caravans are not allowed on the road, but both buses and motorhomes drive up the road ervery day during summer.

Wonderful guided tour through permafrost and into a hand-built BIG ice cave carved into 7000-year-old ice. Skilled guides shared interesting information about the area and climate change, including fun facts. The drive up to Juvasshytta will take you to 1850 meters above sea level and is spectacular. (GPS showed 1867 meters before going down to Juvasshytta). This is the highest road in northern Europe. (NOK 100 toll road for the upper part - but worth it). Driveable with any car. Juvasshytta is also a perfect starting point for a trip to Galdhøpiggen. Dress warm, even if it's hot down in the valley. Temperatures this day, in the middle of July was +6 with a cold wind. The guides said this was very warm compared to normal. Temperature in the ice cave is a stable -2,5. Guided tour can be booked online or at tourist information in Lom.

Galdhøpiggen was beyond our groups capabilities, but this was a fantastic alternative. Very interesting tour across the arctic landscape (on a raised walkway) with lots of info on reindeer hunting, local flora/fauna/geology, permafrost and climate change. Very knowledgeable guide. Trip into the ice tunnel itself was very cool, the ice is thousands of years old and lit up by lights in an interesting way. Don't miss the 20 min detour up the 'Sherpa' path on the way back to look at the Kjelbreen glacier - good place to stop for packed lunch and look for rockfalls and glacier calving.

Its quite a drive up-to the starting-point (note you will get to a toll road that you need to pay for to get access to, you can pay by bank or credit-card). Take some warm clothes, you can buy it at the top but its expensive. The tour and especially the cave/tunnel is amazing. Including 7000 year old ice! Our kids did get bored (and cold standing still a lot) walking to the tunnel. Not being able to follow the guide in English. The Ice tunnel made up for it however. And where the walk to can take an hour+ due to all the stops you walk back in 5 to 10 minutes. All in all an amazing view, story and place to be. Something you should do before it sadly may all melt away (as the guide explained).

We visited Klimapark & booked a tour. Our guide, Astrid, was wonderful & very knowledgeable. She taught us about the special climate in Norway and Lom in particular and how the local findings indicate how the climate is changing. The ice tunnel was great fun. We highly recommend a visit, the money and time was well spent. Thank you, Astrid!
