Hermannsdalstind is a long and strenuous day climb, so I highly suggest you try an overnight trip on the mountain. On top of that, the view is superb, so I highly recommend spending the night! You will have a few great camping choices, depending on how long you need to carry your camping equipment’s, and how long you need fair the climb of the summit to be.
This was a great opportunity for me to try our newly bough REI Co-op Half Dome 2 Plus camping tent and spend the overnight at Hermannsdalstind hut. This view here is only one slice of the incredible 360º panorama encompassing granite peaks, deep fjords, alpine lakes, and of course the endless ocean beyond.
We you are heading to Hermannsdalstind just remember that some sections of hike my need rope pulls so don’t take the word “hike” literally! It’s mostly a climb. The weather is unpredictable. It can rain at any time or the temperature could drop drastically. Bring layers of clothing and make sure you carry a lightweight down jacket. A good pair of hiking waterproof or water-resistant boots is also important. Bring your own booze and food. Norway is not the cheapest place to get a drink or eat.
I am so glad we took our REI Co-op Half Dome 2 Plus Tent with us! There is so much room in this tent with multiple storage areas. It is comfortable, easy to enter and exit and I can set it up, alone, in less than 15 minutes. It takes 5 minutes to take down. It is easy to fold/roll and fit back into the bag. Tent performs well in high wind 40-50mph. Also the tent is a 1 pole ,and it took me while to figure that you need to stake in your tent first in order for it to be a breeze. The DAC poles held up great in the wind. Plus, of course, I always dread rain before breaking camp. It was not a problem at all. Quick shake out and we were good to go. I’m buying another one before our next trip and leaving our big six person at home. So I hghly recommend you buy this one!
