Description


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.
