Départ/Arrivée :
Coming from Svolvaer, keep on for 2 km (1.2 mi.) after the hamlet of Grundstad. In the middle of a big bend in the road, just after the place known as Lyngedal, you'll see an old wooden shed (formerly a garage) on your left. It is possible to park in front of this building without blocking traffic. Take the path to the right of this shack; it leads to a pretty house at the edge of the lake.

At the northwest tip of Vestvågøya Island, in a part of the archipelago that is still rarely visited, the discreet summit of Hellostinden holds pride of place. The walk to the top goes over relatively easy terrain through open landscapes. The panorama is magnificent from the summit, particularly the view of the Vågakallen massif on the neighboring island of Austvågøya. A hike for the whole family.
