Mountain hike to Stålberget on Hadseløya


Join us on a mountain hike to the top of Stålberget. If you like hiking in steep terrain and on beautiful mountain ridges, this is the trip for you.

Vesterålen is HIKER’S PARADISE!

On the north side of Hadseløya, we find Stålberget. On this trip, we go relatively steeply, and it is defined as demanding.

We start by going inwards towards Litleflatsetvannet, which is located at an altitude of 79 metres. Here it is not uncommon to see moose. After a 10-minute walk, we start the ascent towards Hankammen at 297 meters above sea level. Then we follow the mountain ridge up towards Slettheia, and a small area where we get a little break to enjoy the view of the north side of Hadseløya and the southern part of Norway’s third largest island, Langøya.

After a short break, we start the last part of the trip, which will be steep, and some technical terrain all the way up to 602 meters above sea level. From the top, you have a magnificent view of the mountain ridges that we walk along as we walk along Hadseløya, as well as the highest peaks on Hadseløya.

After a good break with brought food and drink, the descent begins. It follows the same route we went up. In total, the trip takes 3-4 hours including good breaks.

This is a trip for those who like to walk in steep terrain, as well as follow fine mountain ridges. If you have a fear of heights or dislike airy areas, do not take part in this tour.
