Hiking to Fløya

Hiker on Djevelporten

Pictures and track proposed by Halfdan Holm

This short, but somewhat intense hike takes you from Svolvær and straight up to an altitude of almost 600 m in about two hours. On the trip you get a great view of the famous Svolværgeita, a stop by the picture-worthy Djevelporten and then a fabulous view of East Lofoten from the top of Fløya. Though be advised: the very final part up to Fløya is only for experienced hikers, however the view a couple of meters further down is just as spectacular!

The first leg follows a clear path up a very steep hill. The walk is fun and a bit challenging, extra caution is required in wet weather. The path then flattens out and suddenly the challenge is mud rather than the steep climb. After passing Djevelporten the path follows the ridge towards the top of Fløya. At some points the path is somewhat unnecessarily close to the cliff, so walking a meter or two parallel to the path can be recommended here and there.

If you'd prefer not to climb up to the very top of Fløya, there's a path going southwest directly to a lower viewpoint, about 40 meters below the peak. If you decide to go all the way to the top you will be forced to climb using our hands in close proximity to the cliff. Climbing down the western ridge from Fløya is also a challenge, so going down to the other viewpoint via the northern ridge may be recommended.

Hiking to Måstad

Mastad1


This long hike lets you get to the old village of Måstad in southeastern Værøy by traversing a large part of the island. It’s also the only way to get to the summits of Måhornet and Måstadheia, with their fantastic viewpoints over the open sea and their unique end-of-the-world atmosphere. The whole Måstad peninsula is classed as a natural park.

Hiking to Håheia

Haheia1


The summit of Håheia (438 m). is the second highest peak on the island of Værøy. It is also the only peak in the archipelago that has a road. It is private and leads to a NATO radar installation. Outside of this little bit of civilization, the wide open landscapes you’ll go through are magnificent. If the weather is clear at the top, you can admire the southeast of the Svartisen glacier, which is 120 km (75 mi). away on the Norwegian continent. This hike is easy and accessible to all. If you have time, you can extend it a little, to the summit of Hornet.

Hiking to Sørlandshagen

Sorlandshagen 1


This big bay, which stretches out on a north-south axis, has a vast stony beach right under impressive granite cliffs. Between the beach and the cliffs there is extended an area of dunes, covered by a meadow with very low vegetation. Traces of human inhabitants from the stone age to the Middle Ages have been found on the southern part of the beach (Hagsletta). More recently the area around the bay was used as a sheep pasture until the 1960’s. The spot is both wild and easy to get to.

Hiking to Nordlandsnupen

Nordlandsnupen1


Not only is the summit of Nordlandsnupen the highest point on Værøy Island, but we think it’s the most beautiful. This relatively easy hike will quickly take you to an altitude high enough to give you magnificent views over the island of Mosken as well as over the whole southern tip of Moskenesøya Island. If you only have one day on Værøy and the sky is clear, go for it!

Hiking to Segltinden

Segltinden1


This magnificent peak stands like a shark’s fin above Kjerkfjorden (the central branch of Reinefjord). Even though it may be surrounded by sheer cliffs that appear inaccessible to hikers, there is nevertheless an approach from Kjerkfjorden. The view from the summit is just as breathtaking as the route that leads to it. It is not as much a traditional hike as a mountain race where you will often have to use your arms and legs to pull yourself up and climb.

In order to start the climb you first have to reach the hamlet of Kerkfjorden, which is possible either by taking the small boat from Reine, or on foot from Selfjord (see hike to Selfjord-Kjerkfjorden). Once at Kjerkfjord take the path through the village heading towards Austerdalen (east). At the end of the path begins the trail, which runs alongside a few chalets and climbs Austerdalen Valley following the stream. Just before the pass at GPS point N67 59.843 E13 02.663, leave the trail and turn right. If you glance at the steep mountain slope in front of you will see a “crack” in the slope running from west to east that meets up with a small pass (you can’t really see it from below but it is shown on the map just below point 475). In order to reach the place where the crack starts in the mountain (GPS N67 59.770 E13 02.739 – 325m altitude) you need to find your way amidst the rock formations and steep areas of slippery grass. Once you have found the start of the crack, you “merely” have to climb, using your arms and legs, the remaining 130m of steep slope up to the little pass. At the pass turn right (southwards) and follow the ridge via Målheia hill then climb the enormous bank opposite. At the top of the bank (approximately 685m) you climb down a little to a narrow pass (GPS N67 59.268 E13 02.835) which is the second difficult section of this route. The route over this pass is narrow and you need a good head for heights. On the other side of the pass, follow a faint path that runs to the right below the ridge for roughly 70m, then turn left (point GPS N67 59.226 E13 02.791 – altitude 705m) to the ridge. In order to reach the ridge you have to climb a rock that has been sculpted by erosion and that vaguely resembles a pile of pancakes. Once at the ridge all your efforts will be worthwhile and you just have to walk 250m on a small plateau with a lunar surface to the summit located just above a large cairn. Go back down exactly the same way. The use of a GPS is highly recommended, particularly to find certain passages near the crack...

Hiking to Hermanndalstinden

Summit of hermandalstinden


As the highest peak on the island of Moskenesøya, Hermannsdalstinden attracts certain hikers who want to be able to say they have conquered this Norwegian Everest. Aside from this rather meaningless “altitude record”, the hike itself, although certainly long, is fairly accessible and passes through absolutely magnificent alpine landscapes. The view from the top on a clear day is breathtaking!

Vikjorda to Brustranda

Vikjorda-Brustranda-1


This good 17 km hike takes you from the bay of Malnesvika as far as the fjord of Rolvsfjorden. The route passes through mountain and valley landscapes where the only living things are a few sheep. The more rounded mountains, unspoilt valleys and plateaus covered with peatland make this little-known and still rarely visited part of the island of Vestvågøya worth the detour.

Hiking to Stortinden

stortinden1

Route proposed by Halfdan Holm

This trip takes you to the second highest peak of Flakstadøya, but it is the highest reachable for an average hiker. It is not an easy trip though. There are practically no path, and it is a steep climb all the way, with one specific point which might make someone feel a little bit uncomfortable.

You park your car at the old high school (N68° 04.689' E13° 14.274'), and walk by the road to where the GPX-track starts. Here you’ll walk on the trips only path for some hundred meters. Then you’ll walk in a steep grass slope to the place where you’ll want to use your hands to help yourself up the mountain.(N68° 04.478' E13° 15.668' - just a meter or two). Shouldn’t be too difficult, but some experience is recommended. Then you’ll continue quite steep up to the pass, where you start walking at the east side of the mountain, before you swap over to the west side the last hundred meters to the top.
The summit is located close to an incredibly steep drop in the north, but there is no need to pass any too steep drops during the trip itself. Not recommended for people who are too afraid of heights though.
When you’ve made it to the top you’ll be rewarded with some of the best views in the entire Lofoten.

Same way back. 

Hiking to Geitgallien

Geitgallien summit on the Lofoten Islands


Geitgallien is the second highest peak in the Lofoten islands after Higravtindan which is only 61 m higher! But apart from this record altitude it is nevertheless one of the most beautiful peaks in the Lofoten archipelago. Combining an alpine landscape with fantastic views over one of the most rugged regions of the islands. Experience of mountain hiking and good weather conditions are indispensable if you are to reach the top safely.

Hiking to Hellsegga

Hikers on the plateau of Hellsegga (Lofoten)


The plateau of Hellsegga overlooks the southernmost tip of the island of Moskenesøya. Beyond this point there are only a few islands scattered throughout the Sea of Norway. The location offers a fabulous view out to sea, as well as a special “end of the world” atmosphere. If you add the fact that the place is one of the most inaccessible of the archipelago, it’s easy to understand why so many hikers on the islands, and beyond, dream of coming here.

Hiking to Hermannsdalen

Hermannsdalen1


This magnificent hike takes you to the lost Hermannsdalen Valley. At the end of the valley, facing the ocean, there is an old abandoned farm, a sign of times not so long ago when people still lived in this extremely isolated part of the islands. This is one of the few hikes that takes you to the virtually inaccessible west coast of the island of Moskenesøya. Hermannsdalen is the perfect place in which to set up camp in a magnificent, peaceful landscape only 4 hours’ walk from Vindstad…

This mountain, which overlooks the tiny hamlet of Gravermarka can be accessed on a good trail which, for once, does not disappear during the hike. After a section through undergrowth you rapidly reach grazing land that offers a clear view over an amphitheatre-like rock formation and a lake. In the last part of the climb, the very beautiful open view is perfect for admiring the highest mountains on the islands. The rocky landscape of the summit is similar to that of high mountain ranges with small lakes and snow patches that remain until late in the season. A good hike, not particularly demanding, accessible any yet very few visitors, only 30 min from Svolvær.

Hiking to Kollfjellet

Kollfjellet1


This small summit is near the E10 road. Very few people come here as there is no trail and the base is covered with a dense birch forest. If, however, you take the time to make your way through the undergrowth following the south-east ridge of the mountain you can easily reach the summit. The viewpoints over the turquoise bay of Flakstadpollen to the north and Lake Storvatnet to the south are breathtaking.

Don’t waste time looking for the start of the trail to the summit because, at the time of writing this guide, there isn’t one. Even though there isn’t a trail there are several ways of reaching the summit, some of which are safer than others. We have chosen to follow the south-east ridge of the mountain from the small car park to the right of the road roughly 950 m after the junction of the E10 and the road to Nusfjord. You head off through the undergrowth along the edge of the road following a north-west bearing at the start. At around 200m altitude you leave the undergrowth and reach a shrub zone that gradually becomes short grassland. You can then see where you are going: look out for a small trail that appears at this level of the mountain and continues to the summit (if you don’t lose it on the way). The simplest and safest way is to follow the ridge to the summit. Even though there are a few steep sections before you reach the plateau at the summit, the view over the bay of Flakstadpollen is magnificent.

It’s possible to carry onto the pass that overlooks Lake Svartvatnet by walking down along the west ridge of Kollfjelet towards Nonstinden (see GPS route below) and coming back via the south slope of Kollfjelet mountain. If you opt for this route bear in mind that the route after the pass, and until you reach the south-east slope of Kollfjelet, is not easy because, in addition to the fact that there is no trail, the slope is very steep.

The simplest way is therefore to go back to the car park from the summit the same way as you came.

Hiking to Finnkjerka

Helfjellet1


This relatively easy hike near the Lofotr Viking Museum in Borg includes a good trail over the entire distance, which is so unusual in the Lofoten islands that it needs to be emphasised. It climbs up the gigantic hill of Helfjellet to the north of the island of Vestvågøya.

From the summit of Finnkjerka there is a fine viewpoint over the north of the islands. Weather permitting, and depending in how the mood takes you, you can either do this hike as a round trip climbing to the summit of Veten (414m), or in a loop hiking past Åland farm in which case you will have to go back along the trail to Straumgård. Lastly, by following the trail along the ridges, it’s possible to reach Vardheia (325m) where the Vikjorda-Brustranda hike and “The Great Crossing of the Lofoten islands” cross.

The trail leaves from the car park (marked as “P” on the map on the bend after Straumgård) and climbs the hill (marked 97 on the map). Shortly afterwards it heads left and climbs up a steep slope to the plateau of Helfjellet that you reach at an altitude of approximately 300 m. The trail then follows the straight edge of the plateau heading south-west. The plateau is covered with shrubs and you will see several trails that head off in different directions. It’s a good idea to walk to the end of Finnkjerka (392m) from where you have a different view of the summit of Veten. From here take one of the trails to the summit of Veten (414m). After Veten the trail goes down to a pass located above Åland farm. Between the pass and the farm the trail sometimes gets lost in the tall grasses (depending on the season). In Åland you will meet up with the trail that will take you back to your starting point. Helfjellet is an easy hike that gives you a fine viewpoint over the island of Austvågøya, and is a perfect hike for all the family.

Hiking to Urevatnet

Urevatnet1


This short hike, which is accessible to everyone, explores a little-known part of the island of Vestvågøya thirty minutes or so to the south of Leknes. The starting point is the hamlet of Ure which boasts a few fine wooden houses from the late 19th century that belonged to rich fishing families. The port is surrounded by many small islands that protect it from the sometimes rough waters of Vestfjord. Behind the hamlet is a small plateau set between two mountains, it opens to the east and to the west over the fjord. Attractive Lake Urevatnet overlooks the plateau.

In the village take the first path on the right (GPS N68° 05.727' E13° 43.508') and climb it virtually to the end (GPS N68° 05.623' E13° 43.416') where you take the trail there heading south/south-west. The trail climbs quickly up to the plateau (around 50m altitude) and continues on the south side of the plateau between the foot of the mountain of Ureberget and a huge swamp zone marked on the map (Myran) and reaches the small pass of Fallet. From the pass take the right-hand trail that climbs north-west towards Lake Urevatnet.

Roughly 200m before you reach the lake, on your left you will see a sheep trail that follows the Åmundtinden ridge and which, after some considerable exertion, takes you to the summit of Breidtinden on your right and Middagstinden on your left. Caution: If you opt for this route remember that the level of difficulty is not the same. Near the lake you will come across a recent building of large raised stones (housing a boat). From this point take the small trail towards your right (east), again you will walk past a tiny lake (which is not marked on the map) before reaching the highest point of the hike in Rabban (120m) from where there is a fine view over the fjord and the hamlet below. The trail goes back down near abandoned farming land and the foundations of a farm. Then, once you have gone through a sheep fence, you go back down on an old stone road and take a trail on the left that leads to the hamlet of Ure (GPS - N68° 05.685' E13° 43.403').

Urvatnet is a nice ramble that is possible virtually all year round.

Hiking to Reinebringen

hiking to Reinebringen (Lofoten Islands - Norway)


This short climb leads to a narrow pass where there is a breathtaking panoramic view over the village and fjord of Reine.

Take the old road, which has since become a cycle lane and which avoids the tunnel south of Reine. The starting point of the track lies to your right at point N67 55.381 E13 04.745 (roughly 200m after the old road coming from Reine). The track begins in a wooded area before quickly reaching the south slope of Mount Reinebringen.

The track then begins to climb a very steep slope and crosses ravines and slippery spots that can be dangerous if the ground is wet or if you stick too closely together (risk of falling rocks).
After a climb which is so steep that you will probably be head down most of the way, you suddenly reach a pass overlooking a sheer drop with the village and fjord of Reine below. The view is simply breathtaking!
From the peak you can take the track on your left to the small peak 150m away where view is more open.

WARNING we strongly advise you not to continue any further along these peaks westwards. In recent years some hikers have taken the risk and never returned!

Hiking to Turtnbakka

Turtnbakka


Ånstad is a 19th century former fishing village that was finally deserted in the 1940s when the inhabitants moved to larger villages such as Sørvågen. Today there remains only the landing-stage of the old port and a few foundations of houses scattered over the heathland.
