The summit of Blekktinden (622 m) rises majestically above the bay of Flakstadpollen on the Island of Flakstad. The climb is steep but includes no major difficulties apart from the track disappearing from time to time. From the summit the view over the island of Flakstadoy is magnificent. You come down along a ridge with a bird’s eye view of the neighbouring valleys.
