There are two marked coastal trails, each described by a separate brochure. One is located in Bø (Straumsjøen – Spjelkvågen) and the other in Andøya (Stave – Bleik). There is also a touring map with several suggested trip itineraries. The map doubles up as a road map. There are also marked trails to the Norwegian Trekking Association's cabins in Vesterålen. The local hiking association has cabins both in the mountains and along the seashore. You may borrow keys to the cabins at the regional tourist office, Vesterålen Tourism.
This is a marked hiking trail about 15 kilometres long between Stø and Nyksund. This is the route that Queen Sonja enjoyed so much in 1994, and which was thereafter called the "Queen's Route". The Queen's Route can be completed as a round trip starting and ending at either Stø or Nyksund.
Covering an area of only 51.2 square kilometres, this is one of the country's smallest national parks, located on Hinnøy, Norway's largest island. Towering in the centre of the national park is Møysalen, the mountain that was in 2009 selected by outdoor magazine Ute as "Norway's most beautiful natural attraction". There are guided hikes to the peak, which is 1,262 metres above sea level. Surrounding mountain tops in the area rise up to 1,000 metres above sea level.
You can get brochures containing route suggestions and descriptions at the local tourist information. There is also a separate website with tips about hiking destinations in Vesterålen. See vesteraalen-regionraad.no.
