About the Møysalen hike

Møysalen National park: Møysalen is the highest mountain peak in Vesterålen and it is also higher than any other mountain in Lofoten with its 1263 meters above sea-level. The trail starts at Kaljord and continues along the water’s edge into the fjord before the climb begins. This is an extremely nice trip for those who want an extra challenge because it is a relatively demanding mountain trip with a unique landscape. It is also possible to have the trip arranged as a guided tour if you wish. As the hike is so long with its total of 22 km from start to you are back at your car, you can calculate a day. But Møysalen can of course be done in hours for those who are familiar and in good shape. Just south of the summit is the Fonnisen glacier.
Of all the mountain hikes in Vesterålen, this hike is regarded as the king.
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 sufficient energy levels.
