Départ/Arrivée :
Coming from Leknes on E10, take the secondary road, Route 996, that starts to your left in a hairpin turn, toward Kvalnes (Vestersand/Bø). Roughly 500 m (550 ft) before arriving at the hamlet of Kvalnes, on the level of the cape of Digerneset, on your right you’ll see a big antenna at the top of a bank. A dirt road, closed by a sheep fence, leads to the antenna. You can park at the start of this road without blocking the access. The path described here begins to the left of the road about 100 m after the sheep fence.

This summit, in the north of Vestvågøya Island, lets you discover a relatively unknown part of the archipelago. Three quarters of the ascent goes up a magnificent ridge line that gives this hike a very aerial look. Finally, the exceptional location of this summit gives it a unique panorama: it’s at the tip of a peninsula, facing the Norwegian Sea and with two big arms of the sea around it.
