Storknubben summit (Lofoten - norway)
Description


For once in the Lofoten Islands this route is clearly marked from the beginning up to the peak without any particularly demanding sections. This hike is possible for entire families and despite the fact that it is not particularly high, there are magnificent views along the entire route.

The track begins behind a sheep fence before climbing into a little wood. Red waymarkers and cairns mark the route up to the summit. You will quickly find that you are above the tree-line in a meadow that rises to the summit.

The slope becomes gentler at Jenndalsaksla where you find yourself opposite the small valley of Trolldalen. Just before the first lake the slope gets steeper and the path turns to the left to climb the shoulder of the mountain. Climb the slope following the cairns to reach the topmost ridge with its two cairns and splendid panorama of the island of Austvågøya.
