  •  /  km From You

Hestkjøltoppen/Mealhkoe is the middle of three peaks in Hestkjølmassivet/Jinjevaerie mountain massif in Lierne. This hike is not marked and clear weather, maps and a compass are required to find your way. From the parking area, walk to Vestgårdsetra and onwards to the peak to the right of Hestkjøltoppen in the massif. Follow the ridge from this peak north-westwards to the summit of Hestkjøltoppen 1390 masl. Experienced hikers can complete the trip in 8-12 hours, but we recommend hiking over two days and bringing camping gear to stay overnight on Flatfjellet. Please note: Reindeer in the area, be considerate.

Directions: Drive Rv765 to Mebygda in Sørli, then turn left at sign “Lierne 3” (Lierne National Park, 3 km to gateway). Continue along the “Estilseterveien” forest road to Estilsetra. Toll fee 20,- NOK in cash.
