Tindstinden

Tindstinden

Norway

This is a truly beatiful hike and not as well known as the Reinebringen hike. From the summit you get a fantastic view of the little village Å i Lofoten and the other islands south of Lofoten.

The Tindstinden hike


Follow the small unpaved road starting from the parking. After a couple of hundred meters you pass by a small lake on your right hand side. Follow one of the several paths up the hill (all the paths end up at the same place).

After a short ascent you reach a stream. Cross the bridge on your left hand side and continue straight forward with the ocean on your left hand side. The trail then windles upwards along a canyon-like path.

In the end of the hike you walk around the top and then reach a really nice viewpoint.


From there you can choose to hike a little further up if you are not afraid of heights

How to get to Tindstinden?


Drive south passing Reine with its famous summit Reinebringen to Sörvågen, which is the little village just before you reach Å i Lofoten.


Sörvågen is the starting place for a lot of 1 and 2 day hikes and there is a quite a large parking by the road. That´s the starting point. You won´t miss it.
