Description


This beautiful hike will enable you to explore the most northern point of Moskenesoya Island, passing through wild, varied landscapes.  From the top of the Litlberget ridge, which looks over the Stokkvikdalen valley, you can’t help thinking of the few families that lived there until the end of the nineteenth century in total isolation. From this recent past there now remain only a few foundations scattered around and peatland meadows enclosed by low stone walls. The magnificent Fuglhuken peak towers over the valley like a shield facing the Norwegian sea.
