From Trolldalen Stokmarknes trip goes along Trolldalsaksla and around the mountain to Lekang Dalen followed westward to Husby valley and Urvatnet. With its footing under the skis it is straightforward to get up on Melbu Moan, in a fairly steep uphill.

Moan is not so high above sea level, but here you get one anyway Alpine feel, with views of the local fells, sea and Hinnøy- and Lofoten mountains. It proceeds gently down towards Kvanntolimyra and Haugnyken. The return trip can be overlaid Seats Hill, east to Close lake, and from there north to Båtvatnet.


Hell Shola is a little ability to penetrate dump in Gullestad Marka, just east of Litlurvatnet down against Båtvatnet. When the cattle were driven down from grazing around Urvatnet and they came down into the cave, so did the shepherds trouble getting cows on. Hence the ugly name.
