Usually, the panoramic viewpoint is at the highest point of a hike. On this trip, every step offers a
panoramic viewpoint, surrounded as you are by a fairytale landscape of jagged mountains,
brightly painted houses, and crystal-clear seas of an often almost tropical colour. A very popular
trail among locals of all ages, this tour proves that even a relatively modest ascent can reward you
with superb views. The total length of the hike is 9.5 kilometres (6 miles) and the highest point is
131 metres (143 yards) above sea level. For the most part, you are passing over fairly flat
heathland. The path is well-established, and easily accessible even on wet days. Even off-road
cyclists use the path, so it is a relatively undemanding walk. The harbour is visible from the trail,
and in the distance, you might see the lingering snow on the peaks of the Norwegian mainland.
In the summer, closer to hand – or foot - common wildflowers can grow to a remarkable size
because of the midnight sun. And while the wildlife possibly won’t get more exotic than the local
sheep, you might see quite a variety of birdlife en route. A leisurely hike, we make sure you have
plenty of time to rest at the top, and just revel in 360 degrees of gorgeousness.
