There’s a little trail that takes you from the electric power station of Forsfjord to the hamlet of Vindstad. This itinerary lets you avoid the very undependable ferry service that connected the two points (only on demand) until last year.
The trail is barely visible but won’t give you any major problems. It goes through two passages of big stone blocks and passes over a few rocky slabs where you’ll have to be careful, especially if you’re carrying a heavy pack. Finally, like many places in the Lofotens, the ground is partially covered by thick vegetation (ferns).
