Ravnfloget Via Ferrata is a spectacular climbing trail that takes you to the top of Ravnfloget. Out on the west side of Vega island, just above the pebbly beach, you will find the entrance to the climbing trails that take you 225 meters straight up the rock face.
From the parking lot at Sundsvoll up to the fixture, a nice path has been created through an exciting landscape. The trip is just under 30 min quiet walk and has 100 meters of altitude.
Here you will find two trails, one "green" and a "black" that meet each other halfway up the rock face. The climb takes about 1.5 hours from the start until you are up at the top of the rock face.Along the course there are two spectacular rest areas where you can take a little break and enjoy the view which in itself is an experience.
You rely on the guide and climbing equipment to make the trip. The climbing trail itself is an airy and exciting challenge both physically and mentally. With professional and clever guides, and well secured trail, this is a trip that can be carried out by the vast majority.
"Climbing the Ravnfloget has been a dream for many. A bare mountain that has mostly been a playground for raven and sea eagles."
The trail ends with a "Nepal bridge" where you line up over the big crack in the mountains. The bridge is a highlight for those who like a challenge, but if it gets too scary you can finish the trip before the bridge and follow a path the last few meters to the top.

Vegatrappa – The Vega Stairs
The Vega Staircase is a nice option if you want up to the unique view, without climbing and guiding. From the parking lot you follow a path and a few short stairs around 400 meters before you meet the first step. Along the way you walk past the big stone, a great rest area, as well as a number of sculptures along the trail.
The staircase is about 2000 steps, with several stops along the way. The last part swings into the climbing track and into the mountain crevice before you reach the top and are greeted with a view of the island of Søla and the entire Vega World Heritage Site.
Whether you choose harnesses or steps, Ravnfloget is an absolute recommendation to those visiting Vega.
