100 FINEST in SCANDINAVIA.

Scandinavia has 99 mountains with prominence (primary factor) of at least 1000 meter, number 100 comes close with a prominence of 996 meter.
There are 6 "Ultra" peaks having prominence exceeding 1500 meter, while the number of Major Mountains with prominence of at least 600 meter totals 652.
(A maximum of 13 peaks could fall below the 600 meter prominence cutoff, while there are a total of 22 additional peaks that could make the list.
This uncertainty is due to the interpolation of the available contour intervals when computing the key saddle elevation.)

The Norwegian mountains have their location listed in UTM coordinates while the Swedish mountains use longitude/lattitude in degrees.

Here is a Google Map showing all peaks in Scandinavia with at least 600 meter of prominence.

Each peak has a link to more detailed information, in particular, documentation of the key saddle that defines the primary factor (prominence).

Confirmed or suspected corrections are most welcome by email to: petter@ii.uib.no

I appreciate that use of these data is acknowledged including a link to my main mountain page.

In order to see all MAJOR MOUNTAINS in Scandinavia, see the list of 570 Major Mountains in Norway
and the list of the 87 Major mountains in Sweden.
(5 peaks are shared between the two countries.)

Here is a map of Scandinavia's top 100 by prominence, and here is a map of my unclimbed peaks.
Two stars behind the rank means that I have climbed it (38/50, 79/100).

* There are two competing summits (each measured to 1914 m) for being number 46 (in Prominence) in Scandinavia.
The two summits are separated by a saddle between contours (1640-1660) at location N67:19.644 E17:57.387.
The lower of the two summits will have a prominence of 264 meter.
The location of Ruopsoktjåkkå is N67:19.848 E17:58.850.
Until the relative height is decided, a climber must visit both summits in order to claim this peak.

** We consider this peak to be on the border between Norway and Sweden.
It is also the highest point on the Norwegian-Swedish border.
There is a relatively flat summit plateau and the border crosses this, very close to the highest point.
