TJELDBER- AKSLA OVERLOOKING SVOLVAER

11 suggestions 

Not everyone is able to go up the steep hillside to Tjeldber- Draw to get a utikt of Svolvaer, so this is a simpler lightly-used option. The walk up to the view from the outermost mast Tjelbergsaksla suitable for most since the route runs on dirt road and only the last 150 testers are on the trail. My mother on 72år went up in about 30 minutes.

After 250 meters from the car park is entered to the left and follow the gravel road up to the mast at about 150moh. Halfway one passes Tjeldbergtind shooting range. When one is with the main mast is entered on the trail behind the house and follow a small path 150 meters south until you come to another small mast where you can get good views of Svolvær if the peaks of the bushes are cut down.

Whether to up to Tjeldbergtind so there is a sign to the right in the corner just before the house and mast Tjeldber- shafts.

Start at Nordland Hagen, where the road ends a few hundred meters southwest of the abandoned airport. It's clear path all the way. Fairly steep slope towards the sea the first 1.5 km.Stien can be quite slippery here in wet weather, so one should be forsiktig.Fra Eidet can take a detour (20-30 min.) To the seabird colonies before proceeding to the actual Mostad .From Mostad it's a quick trip on a small hour up to Måhornet, 439 m trail starts south of the hamlet and is clear to see where the settlement ends - some narrow, airy parties! Great to continue inward Mostad Heia.

LAZY DAYS IN PARADISE

Lofoten Turlag

About group 35 SuggestionsWhat   3 cabins

Paradise right at Kabelvåg Lofoten is first and foremost climbers paradise. But here and enough to take care of others. You can hike, swim, fish or just relax in the camp, which is easily accessible from the parking lot.

Parker by Kalle and walk about a kilometer west to Brem Vika. Here you have several camp opportunities. After the camp is established, it is just to start with climbing. Paradise has everything what a fresh wedge climber need to become a better climber, while also the most experienced have enough to take off!

However, there is no point in going on a climbing trip here if you're thinking about sport climbing - here are no bolts.

The driver for the area are available from Northern Norwegian climbing school .

From Glomtind you have a wonderful view towards Vågakallen in the south, with the sea in the background, and the Svolvaer to the east. The top is easy to climb and hike is suitable as a short and easy walk you can take an afternoon or when you want a few hours with some fresh air.

From the parking area, follow the dirt road back to Rørvik vessel. From here on the trail southeast of the backrest to Glomstinden. To get up to the top takes some easy scrambling, but it is not particularly susceptible.

On the return you can choose to return the same way, or for a longer trip back you can follow the trail along the ridge down to the southeast towards Veal Tjønna, take bilbroa over Hopspollen and follow the road back. By Hopsvatnet follow the dirt road that runs north of Hopsmarka, up to Rørvik vessel, and further down to the car park at Rørvik lake.

TOP TRIP TO HAVERN

 

Odd Einar Where Sten

2 suggestions 

We were two older guys who took the trip to havern. The tour starts something flat before the climb of about 400 hm goes right up to Lillehavern Plateau. This fetal part here is marked by much climb where you almost can stand upright and keep your hands in the grass, so it's reasonably steep. But it goes trails criss-crossing up through the mountainside. So take the time you need and do not wear yourself out in this first part. On the plateau the hilly climb, but it is perceived as more affordable. As you approach the top comes one party where you go up and vedsiden of the edge on the way out to the top. Here you should have fear of heights on "your side". The sides of the ridge is characterized by rockfall / cairn as stepping carefully so you do not take your foot or for the part from slipping. Vell arrive you will be rewarded with a beautiful view of Lofoten!

On the large Vestvågøy you can pick and choose among walks high and low. Among top tours are Haveren a good choice. It is VESTVÅGØY 4th highest peak after Himmel Draw, Bear Sand Draw and Ristinden. 

We start from Bo and extending Bødalen to Bøvatnet. From the water we begin to go right up the hillside toward Litlehaveren Plateau. Then we continue back towards Sletthaveren, 538 m and up on the top 808 m. The last part is something airy.
