This long hike, which crosses the island of Flakstadoya from north to south, takes you to the small hamlet of Nusfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The first section of the route goes along the shore of Nappstraumen, the stretch of sea that separates the islands of Vestvagøya and Flakstadøya. Don’t be fooled by the apparent flatness of this coastal hike.
