Our last tour on snowshoes is Skulgamtinden on Ringvassøya island. We park the car along the road 863, near Gårdselva.

Right from there the route starts straight upwards, between
Gammelgårdsfjellet and point 328 m, then to the top at 824 m: Skulgamtinden. Snowdrifts at the northeastern side of Skulgamtinden are hudge! Now we have to be carefull to cross the last 100 meters of the ridge. Although both side where steep, and avalanche risk is to be considered, we have a space about 8 to 10 meters, large enough to cross over to the view point.
Stunning view to Kløftinden and Breifjellet!
