The view over Henningsvær, is best seen from “Festvågtind” which is one of Lofoten’s most scenic peaks. Whilst easier to hike than the “infamous” Reinebringen, this peak is popular amongst outdoor enthusiasts and photography communities. This peak is accessible by a moderate nature/mountain hike, and the rewarding views are truly amazing!
This fantastic experience combines two of our most popular activities, hiking with a view, and exploring the cozy traditional fishing villages of Lofoten.
