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.
