The Ridges of Nonstinden - Lofoten (Norway)
Description


An excellent hike around the bay of Unstad to discover this tiny lost valley on the western coast with its immense beach that has now become a favourite spot for surfers who don’t mind the cold and who come here to ride the rollers in winter.

The route starts in the village centre and takes the old road into the valley before the tunnel was built. At the Kleivdalen pass you get a fine view of the narrow Stein fjord below.

From here you take the little path on your right which takes you to the top of Nonstinden. From the peak you follow the splendid ridge that overlooks the bay of Unstad and the beautiful Lake Utdalsvatnet to end up on a huge pebble beach…
