The peak of Tønsåsheia rises up between the village of Nusfjord and the fjord of Skjelfjord. It is the starting-point of an impressive chain of peaks that are difficult to climb and which run as far as the village of Ramberg to the north of the island of Flakstad. From the top there is a magnificent panorama of the turquoise waters of Skjelfjord, the Vestfjord and Stjerntinden (934 m), the highest peak on the island. What’s more, despite the steep slope it is easy to get to the top and the path is clearly visible all along the route.
