About the Festvågtinden hike

The Festvågtinden hike is a nice but an relative steep hike. You will experience fresh air and great views from bottom to the top, but be aware of smaller loose rocks on the way up and down as the trail can be crowded. On the way up you will get a nice view towards Gimsøy, and Vestfjorden and big parts of Lofoten when reaching the top. Festvågtinden is one of the most popular hikes in the Lofoten Islands, but be aware of the very steep cliff on the top, towards the sea-side, in case you bring your kids or dog. You can expect this hike to last for 3 hours total time from start to finish if you are active and in reasonably good shape.
Be aware that although the maps are based on GPS tracks, the intention is still just to provide the starting point and approximate direction of the trip, and do not take into account exact positioning. The accuracy of maps and GPS can also vary slightly.
You are always responsible for making your own assements when hiking in the mountains.It is also important to be well-suited for the weather conditions, in addition to bringing enough water and a snack to keep the energy level stable.
