Description

 
Although these two beautiful peaks above the town of Leknes (Vestvagoya) are easy to climb, they offer a spectacular panorama of the central part of the Lofoten Islands.

The first part of the walk is on a pretty little path that passes through a forest of dwarf birch trees and pines. The track runs alongside a stream to a grazing area where in summer you can see half-wild sheep. From here you cross to the other side and head for Andjordbakkan.

The path rises and runs through a pass between the two peaks from where you get your first sight of the magnificent Vestfjord. A little path on your left takes you to the top of Bulitinden from where there is a good view of Storfjorden to the north. Then go back down the pass and take the southern edge to the top of Guratinden.

The path along the edge offers a wealth of lovely views! Return by the same path.
