Hike Description

The view and the proximity to the center of Rognan attract many to this destination. You also get good exercise with the purchase. Some believe the name Rognan comes from the word raun, which means bare mountain bed. If so, Rognan gets its name from the rock wall that guards the place and which you might want to climb? The path along the flag is good, but steep at the start. Fortunately, you can rest on some benches at the worst spots.

The hike is one of Salten Friluftsråds 55 captivating hikes in the region.
