Description


When you leave the island of Vestvågøy to go south of the Lofoten Islands, you see the summit of Stornapptinden rising up like a solitary impressive sentry facing the Straits of Nappstraumen.

This peak looks inaccessible but there is a narrow route for hikers. A short way from the village of Napp, drive to the little pass. About a hundred metres after the pass take the right-hand lane that leads to a big reservoir and a tiny ski lift. The path starts here and follows the ski slope.

You climb quickly to the first little plateau before taking the steep path that leads to the summit. After a tough section that rises at an angle of more than 25° you arrive at the ridge that leads you to the top where there is a splendid panorama! Return taking the same route.
