About group 35 SuggestionsWhat   3 cabins

On the tiny island of Værøy there are a surprising number of walks. A nice trip island along with ascent of the second highest peak is a nice day trip

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. 

Moderate walk, 2-3 hours each way mark.
