Not only is the summit of Nordlandsnupen the highest point on Værøy Island, but we think it’s the most beautiful. This relatively easy hike will quickly take you to an altitude high enough to give you magnificent views over the island of Mosken as well as over the whole southern tip of Moskenesøya Island. If you only have one day on Værøy and the sky is clear, go for it!
