About the Ristinden hike

The Ristinden hike is a hike to a mountain peak that provides a very 360 degree view over Vestvågøy, beaches, mountain ranges and the sea. But the trip is sometimes very steep. When you start, you wonder if it is possible. Therefore, it is best to leave this to very active and experienced mountain people where it is important to keep your tongue straight in your mouth and step correctly. That said, Ristinden is far from impossible, there are many who have been here before, and the feedback is that there are few who regret; much because of the amazing view, and a little because of the feeling of mastery.
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.
