This mountain, which overlooks the tiny hamlet of Gravermarka can be accessed on a good trail which, for once, does not disappear during the hike. After a section through undergrowth you rapidly reach grazing land that offers a clear view over an amphitheatre-like rock formation and a lake. In the last part of the climb, the very beautiful open view is perfect for admiring the highest mountains on the islands. The rocky landscape of the summit is similar to that of high mountain ranges with small lakes and snow patches that remain until late in the season. A good hike, not particularly demanding, accessible any yet very few visitors, only 30 min from Svolvær.
