Description

Distance: approx 15km there and back.
Estimated time to the summit: 4 – 5 hours
Suitable for: The physical fit. The last part to the top is a little demanding.
Start and finish: Go south from Harstad, past Tjeldsund Bridge and towards Lødingen. Park at Sandtorg sportsground (signposted in Årbogen).
Necessary equipment: None, but good shoes are recommended due to rocky parts at the end.
Map: Walking map of Vesterålen-Hinnøya (Statens kartverk 1:100 000)
Marked trail: No. Good path. Visible peak from starting point.
Drinking water: Intermittent before the final ascent to the top.
Route description: Follow path/road through the gate from the football pitch. There is a road heading to Årbogvatnet 258m. (Alternatively, you can follow the path on the west side of Årbogelva). Continue from the lake a short distance south to the ridge, where you will find a cabin (book). From here, follow the posts to the top. Follow the same route going back. If you descend along the road on the north side of the river, make sure that you continue straight on where the paths meet on the plain close to the sportsground. If you don’t, you will end up on the north side of the river and have to follow the road all the way down to E-10 and then head south and back up again to the sportsground.
