Description


This hike, which offers no particular challenges, quickly takes you onto a magnificent path along a ridge from where you can see the most beautiful part of the eastern coast of the Lofoten Islands with its many coves of fine sand, its clusters of islands and islets and its crystal-clear waters.

Take the wooden bridge on the side of the tarmacked track and follow the farm track that climbs alongside the stream to your right. Walk towards the farm at the end of the field. Some thirty metres after the farm buildings, turn left towards the birch trees growing on the edge of the field. You will arrive at a first fence that you will have to climb over. Then continue westwards and climb over a second fence. Following the fence northwards you will come to a little gate. Keeping the camp to the west, you reach the start of the shoulder that rises to the low peak of Humpen (“the Hump”) that rises to 290m.

The important thing is to climb staying more or less in the middle of the ridge which forms an arc sloping southwards. Once you have reached Humpen, all you have to do is follow the path along a ridge going southwards. You will go along the left-hand side of a little pond and continue to the peak of Litltinden (391m). Do not climb up the peak but cut across below it to reach the top of Dalstinden at the end of the ridge (452m). Go back the same way.
