This small peak near Leknes on the peninsula of Offersøya is where a certain number of runners from the neighbouring town meet, you often see them jogging on the trail! Even though the altitude at the top is less than 450m, the panoramic view it offers is fantastic.
To the west is the Norwegian Sea with its turquoise bays and golden-sand beaches, to the south is Nappsstraumen, a fast-running stretch of sea that separates the islands of Vestvagøy and Flakstadøy, to the noorth-east you overlook the entire plateau of Leknes while the north is obstructed by the imposing Himmeltindan mountain range.
This hike is recommended if you have limited time and want to stretch your legs or if you are looking for a romantic evening gazing at the midnight sun.
