Vue du sommet de Blåheia
Description

 
This summit overlooking the fjord of Skifiorden near Stamsund is still hardly known by hikers. There is no trail to reach it and the slopes are extremely steep. Despite these difficulties—surmountable for a hiker used to navigating this kind of terrain—the panoramas are impressive and varied all along the way.
