4-summits trip

SUMMER SEASON

Vesterålen is both known as “Hiker’s Paradise” and “The Green Alps”. After taking this hiking trip with us, you will understand why.

Vesterålen is HIKER’S PARADISE!

The hardest part of the hiking trip we will do in the beginning. We follow a well-marked trail from the starting point up to the mountain peak, Tuva, which is 360 meters above sea level. After a short photo stop, we follow the ridge towards Storheia 504 meters above sea level. The ridge between the mountains is magnificent without big challenges. We pass a slightly technical area on the way, but will pass this without any problems.

When we arrive at Storheia, we have a magnificent 360-degree view.

The hike then continues down to Ørnhei cabin to approx. 330 meters, where we have a longer break to enjoy our lunch pack and drink we have brought. Nothing tastes better at the halfway point.

After a good break, we start the ascent to peak number three, Ørneheia, which is 387 meters above sea level. Here we will enjoy the view to the east, where we see Lofoten and Vesterålen’s highest mountain, Møysalen.

We have now finished “climbing”, and start the descent towards the foot of the mountain via peak number 4, Heibruna.

The descent goes through a forest where birch and spruce are in the majority. We are down at the foot of the mountain after 4-5 hours.
