Varden (Norwegian for “Cairn”) is a magnificent peak that is easily reached and overlooks the narrow stretch of sea separating the islands of Vestvågøya and Vagan. Our route takes us near several little lakes that tempt you to have a swim in summer and soon continues along a curved ridge that offers a magnificent panorama over the Sea of Norway and the northern tip of the Lofoten Islands.
