Hiking (May - October)
Nowhere is the landscape more complete than when the view towards the wild mountains and peaks can be combined with the view of the fjords and the sea. It is this combination that makes the perfect mountain hiker experience. Around Lauklines, there are lots of hiking opportunities for every level of ability and ambition. You can experience a gentle stroll along valleys with babbling brooks and small waterfalls in lush birch forests. Spend a quiet moment away from everything at a small tarn or lake. The islands and skerries between the fjord and the open ocean offer varied opportunities for hiking, in summer or winter. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, you can try the challenge of a peak trip and a walk along the steep ridges with a wide open view in all directions. In the summer you can take all the time you need, with daylight 24 hours a day, and in good weather you can take in the subtle changes in colour of the landscape as the sun turns above the horizon for hours before rising to shine on another day.
Our cooperation partner Tromsø Outdoor offer guided hiking trips:
Vasstinden (896 m above sea level) is the highest peak outside Kattfjordeidet on the island of Kvaløya. From the summit, there are wonderful views of the surrounding sea, northwards to the Ersfjord Pass and southwards to Senja and Lenvik. The hike is steep at the start, but does not provide other aerial challenges until you reach the top and look down into the valleys of Isdalen and Likdalen.
Join us on a guided hike beginning from Lauklines Kystferie with a short drive to Vasstrand. We hike to the summit of Stortuva (296 m above sea level) near Vasstrand. There is a great view of the Arctic coast and inwards of the majestic massif on the island of Kvaløya.
