This is a short cross-country hike that takes you to the peak overlooking the town of Svolvær in half a day. Leaving Svolvær you climb to a small plateau that has a number of fine viewpoints.
You end the hike by walking through a pretty birch wood whose floor is covered in blueberries. The hike ends at the picturesque little village of Kabelvåg which is the oldest port in the Lofoten Islands.
If you have the time you can also do this hike as a loop (Svolvær/Svolvær) by returning along the track that runs alongside Kongselva, or even by going round the big Lake Stor-Kongsvatnet...
