Guided mountain hike in Vesterålen - Adventure 4 Life
Join us for a memorable and majestic mountain hike with spectacular views and storytelling.
Our guided hikes are in the mountains in the southern part of the Vesterålen islands. The mountain guide will "spice" the hike with interesting stories and facts about the area and fauna where we are hiking. The unbeatable combination of the mountains and fjords, makes the hike a grand experience. When on top of a mountain, the view is so beautiful that you want to stay there forever. There are a lot of eagles in our region. We can almost guarantee that we will see this majestic bird soar above us, looking for a prey. Moose is also common to see, while the population is high in these areas. You can see the Midnight Sun in Vesterålen between the 22nd. of May until the 21st. of July. We are happy to arrange hiking tours which make you sit on a mountain top at 1 am., when the sun is at its lowest.
