Route proposed par hr.frosk
One of my top three favourite trips in Lofoten. After only 30 min walking, you will discover the magnificent gulf around Moskenesvatnet. You can access this paradise either from the churchyard of Moskenes or from Sørvågvatnet.
The trip up is, as already mentioned, short and with no complications. When you are there, you have a lot of possibilities in regards of which peaks you want to visit, but I recommend to take all of them. Gylttinden might be challenging for someone, with a quite steep approach.
The path is perfect except for the one east of Moskenesvatnet, which isn’t very clear.
