Ever present, towering on the horizon, the Tyven mountain promises a magnificent, unhindered view over Hammerfest, Seiland and Sørøya for those who undertake the long way to the top, 418 meters above sealevel.
The well kept dirt road twists and turns along the ridge of the mountain, from Tunnellbakken by Storvannet, and carries you through some of the most beautiful mountain scenery the coast of Finnmark has to offer.
The hike is 7,7km long in each direction, and of medium difficulty. A more demanding and direct route is available for experienced hikers. Please contact the tourist office in Hammerfest for help with any questions you might have.
