We had had our first-ever mountain hike on Fløya two days before going to Tjeldbergtinden, so this obviously didn't feel that tough anymore when compared with Fløya. Beautiful sights at the both ends of the top! We took this as an afternoon/evening hike in amazing...More

Just outside of Svolvær (walking distance) you’ll find the path that takes you to Tjeldbergtinden. You’ll need apx 2 - 3 hours up and down. That time includes spending some time enjoying the view. Here you’ll get an amazing view over Vestfjorden, Svolvær and Kabelvåg....More

Great walk to the Tjeldbergtind mountain top, but don't underestimate the steep hills during the second part to the top.

Got the recommendation from the reception at our campsite to try out this hike with our daughter. It is a somewhat steep hike up, but is done in an hour or so if taking it easy.

Went up during March, so it was pretty steep and can be challenging at times due to the snow. But it was worth it and the view from the top was spectacular. To get there, turn right at the Esso on the E10 and then...More

Thinking that Floya would be too much of a challenge, we chose to hike up Tjeldbergtind. It's classed a 1/4 but that's for Norwegians and their families who do this on a regular basis. If you're just an average walker/hiker, you would have no problems...More

If you are coming in to Svolvær along E10 from Svolvær Airport, Esso will be on your right handside. You will have to pass the shell and circle K petrol stations and go on for another 5mins. We followed some reviews and parked near the...More

I just hiked up Tjeldbergtind a few days ago. It was pretty steep for US standards and the snow made it difficult. Without the snow you should be fine, I think there's not that much snow then. But because of the polar night... More

Inputs/Critiques to 7 day Lofoten Itinerary (5 Replies)
Anyone with any experience/knowledge of Lofoten, do you have any inputs/recommendations/critiques to the below itinerary? Hubby and I are in our early 30s, "slow travellers", planning 7 days in Lofoten. We're flying into Harstad/Narvik (already in Europe so no jet lag) and will be renting a car for our time there, planning our time around landscape photography and hiking/beaches. Need help with Day1/2 and input on hikes planned. Are they doable with the other things planned those days?...More

I would advise you to have loose plans and be flexible. There is the ever variable weather and to climb a peak on a day with poor visibility would be a bit pointless. Always have a plan B and even a plan C. We were there in late June and one morning we woke up to very strong winds and horizontal rain. A day for the museum at the best. The rain stopped in the afternnon, the wind persisted. Ramberg beach you will pass on your way to and from, so plenty of opportunities for that one. If you...More
