Turquoise fjord at the foot of Matmora - Lofoten
Description


This is an excellent one-day hike to be tackled when the weather is fine. The summit is reached via a long line of peaks from which the views are as plentiful as they are magnificent.

The rocky summit of Matmora is often still covered in snow until June! As you come down from the summit you pass near the ruins of old iron mines that were being worked until the beginning of the 20th century.

You can make this one-way hike a loop by taking the little road to Straumnes.
