The mountains of Vesterålen – green Alps in the North

The mountains of Vesterålen – green Alps in the North

 

There are plenty of easy accessible mountains in the whole Vesterålen area. It doesn’t matter where you go. The unbeatable combination of the mountains and fjords, makes the hike a grand experience. When on top of a mountain, the view is so magnificent that you want to stay there forever.

  

Our guided hikes are in the mountains in the southern part of the Vesterålen islands. The mountain guide will “spice” the hike with interesting stories and facts about the area and fauna where we are hiking.  

There are a lot of eagles in our region. We can almost guarantee that we will see this majestic bird soar over us, looking for a prey. Moose is also common to see, while the population is high in these areas.

The view is marvelous and the surroundings breathtaking!

You can see the Midnight Sun in Vesterålen between the 22nd. of May until the 18th. of July. We are happy to arrange hiking tours which make you sit on a mountain top at 1 am., when the sun is at its lowest.
