About the Keipen hike

Both the Grytetippen hike and Keipen hike are very popular because of spectacular views, and you can easily do them both in one trip, as they share most of the trail and are separated by only 650 meters. Keipen is located on the west side, Grytetippen on the east side of the map. From the summits you will get a really nice view of mountain-chains, fjords and the Norwegian sea. Keipen and Grytetippen are also nice spots for midnight sun during the summer and northern light during the winter. The hike is quite demanding as you gain a lot of altitude over a short distance. In other words; it’s a partly steep hike.
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.
