Vengsøytraversen

 
 

A hike that requires a lot from you, it is challenging and "airy". It starts in Stordalen, goes up to the first mountain top, Vengsøytinden, continues to Horntinden, Kvantotinden and lastly Stortinden. From Stortinden you start going down hill and complete the hike just by the white "church". During this hike you get the amazing view of the ocean in the west, the smaller islands facing north and the mountains on Kvaløya facing south.
