Peak trips in Lofoten

In Lofoten you are surrounded by several pleasant Lofoten peaks.

We recommend a series of peaks with height of 440-550 meters, which can be wandered with or without a local guide. Marked trails/routes provide safety for them willing to go on their own.

The best months for hiking are usually May, September and October. (Why not from May till October??) Then there are generally good conditions and no snow. The well-trained may cope well with five peak trips on a long weekend.

Kjeldbergtind in Lofoten (367 m)
Easy peak trip on nice paths. Suitable for children as well. Reckon with 30 to 60 minutes upward, depending on your fitness and experience. The mountain has two peaks, both with great views and visitor books. Start at the road up to the link in Osan. Those willing to go another way down than up, go to the rear of the highest peak and follow the temporary road back down to the starting point.

Blåtind in Lofoten (521 m)
Nice trip on distinct path. The last part is somewhat steep and not suitable for children. Lovely view. Reckon with 90 to 120 m upward. Start at Knutmarka Camp School.

Djevelporten (Devil's Gate) and Fløya in Lofoten (540 m)
Somewhat demanding trips for the more experienced. Start from the distinct trail near the Svolvær Cemetery. First part of the trip is steep. Reckon with ca. 1 hour up to Djevelporten and the absolutely stunning view. From Djevelporten, it takes about 30 minutes upward onto Fløya. Here and there, this route is very steep, so it is not recommended for people with fear of heights.

Glomtind in Lofoten
Easy trip on nice path. Here you can safely take your children along. Reckon with 1 hour to the top. Great view, including to the famous mountain called Vågakallen. The trip to Glomtind starts at the old road over the mountain, just before the descent to Henningsvær.

Småtindan in Lofoten
A slightly longer trip - reckon with 2.5 hours to the peak. The trip is not suitable for children. Start at Solbakken outside Kabelvåg (near Eidet). Follow the road into Kabelvågmarka and proceed from the sign marked "Småtindan" on the left side just before the shooting-range. The trail is poorly marked up there, but you will find your way easily. Stunning views from the peak towards Svolvær and Kabelvåg, Lyngvær and Gimsøy. Bring plenty of water.


Vågakallen is for the more advanced hikers and climbers. Safety equipment is required, and we recommend a guide to them not familiar with the mountain.
