Description


This magnificent hike runs along the ridges that overlook the plain of Leknes to the north and the majestic Vestfjord to the south. Throughout the hike you will be treated to a series of breathtaking views.

The very varied landscapes are made up of a huge moor and areas of lakes and bogs during the first part of the route. The second part, which is steeper, passes through a broad, high meadow before reaching a magnificent summit from where, when the weather is fine, you can see the Norwegian shoreline beyond the fjord.


Most people take the same path back but there is a variant which takes you along the ridge of Steindalstinden to the little settlement of Storfjorden.
