Rombakstøtta is the signature mountain of Narvik and with its distinct profile, it is an eye catching mountain visible from the centre of Narvik city and sometimes nicknamed the Matterhorn of Narvik.
Tøtte is local slang for girl and Rombak comes from the fjord that the summit towers a total of 1231 meters above. The top of the mountain is a true summit with an airy feel and offers a spectacular 360 degree view to the town of Narvik and the rest of Ofotfjorden and the surrounding mountains and straight down into the fjord along the steep north wall of Rombakstøtta.
The start of the trip to the summit of Rombakstøtta goes from the parking at the citys watersupply, where the trailhead is located at about 200 meters elevation. The approach follows along easy walking trails through the Tøttadalen (the Tøtta valley). After about 5km of hiking and about 700 meters of elevation, one has reached the mountain proper. From here the trail goes between boulders and screes on the south side of the summit till you make a turn and follows the east ridge towards the summit. There is one last challenge right below the summit, with a steeper section where you will have to do some scramling. The descent follows the same way back to the parking.
