This route was suggested in Tourist office as an alternative to Fløya in a rainy day. We are experienced hikers, but I didn’t want to take a risk to take kids up if the weather will get worse. We walked from boats marina to the start of the trail next to fire station. The trail starts as a tractor way and continues through the steep forest after. There are 2 tops you can access walking the same ridge. The both are easy, but the higher one had 20-30 meters you need to hold a rope. Views from both are breathtaking. Good hiking shoes are always advised!

Since the weather did not allow for longer hikes (cloundy, risk of rain), we decided to climb to the top of Tjeldbergtind. The hike started out on a gravel road, but soon advanced to a little more demanding and fun trail with somewhat steeper sections. Shouldn't be too hard for most people though. In other words, a fairly easy and short hike, close to Svolvær, yet still pays off in terms of spectacular views of Svolvær and Kabelvåg. Two possible peaks to venture, one of them where you can climb to the top with the help of a fixed rope. Apparently, there is also another, more gentle way up where you don't need to climb the rope. Make sure to sign your name in the guest book ;-) We were lucky that the clouds rose a bit higher while we were on the top, so we got to enjoy the view properly. But when we started descending, it started to rain as well, which made it a bit slippery coming down, yet not "impossible". If you have only limited time, the skies are not all clear or you simply want a shorter hike, this is the perfect spot!

Fantastic view from the top. Good shoes/boots necessary as quite slippery in places. 45 minutes to walk up and 30 minutes to get down again. If you do the higher peak it will take longer. We stopped at the peak on the left of the path.

Probably the best place to be if you want to hike in Svolvær. Trails are very easy to find and sometimes are very steep. Hiking boots are recommended all season

My wife & I hiked this peak on October 1, 2019. It was easy to get to from Svolvaer just a 10 min drive on the E10. Parking around the fire station. We took the ocean-facing route up to Linken (105 meters above sea level) hilltop first then to Tjeldbergtinden (367 meters above sea level). We took the backside route back. The hike was a few hours each way. Each route was nice, with the backside route in a more forested area with good lake views & the view up with views of the ocean & Svolvaer. Great photo ops & memories of views from the top near evening time. We loved the hike & the views. It is is a great half-day hike & not very strenuous, but does have some elevation.
