Description


This good 17 km hike takes you from the bay of Malnesvika as far as the fjord of Rolvsfjorden. The route passes through mountain and valley landscapes where the only living things are a few sheep. The more rounded mountains, unspoilt valleys and plateaus covered with peatland make this little-known and still rarely visited part of the island of Vestvågøya worth the detour.
