Hiking to Mount Keipen
Keipen is a relatively easy hike which offers a magnificent view from the top. Drive to Aunfjellet (8km northwest of Harstad).
Keipen is located on the left-hand side to the road at Aunfjellet. Park in the large parking lot at the top, just after the smaller shoulder parking area. From here there is a marked trailthat leads to the peak.
Fantastic view towards the west, and an excellent place to see the midnight sun. Approx 4 km return trip, estimaded time to reach the top is about 30 minutes.
