Description


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!
