Sulitjelmaisen is one of the largest glaciers in mainland Norway. Part of the glacier is in Sweden, where it is referred to as Salajekna. When the whole glacier is considered (i.e. including the parts located in Norway), is the largest glacier in Sweden. The glacier's highest point is 1,680 m (5,512 ft) above sea level and its lowest point is 830 m (2,723 ft). The glacier has retreated in recent years. Stockholm University operates an automatic weather station near the glacier front.
