Hiking Description

The trip is the starting point for several nice hiking destinations in the area. On the way up, you pass Lauvvatnet, which is a source of drinking water in Gildeskål. If you want a shorter trip, Lauvatnet is an excellent destination for families with small children. If, on the other hand, you want to take a longer walk than Høgfjellknubben, you can go on to the slightly higher Sandnestinden.

The Marisko orchid grows here and can be enjoyed up close. But don’t take the flower home with you. It is protected.

The trip is one of the Salten Outdoor Activities Council’s selected 55 captivating hikes in the region.
