Hike Description

The steepest part of the walk is at the start, up the grassy meadow, while the rest of the walk is much gentler. The last part is somewhat airy and can be challenging for some, but the payoff is great when you stand on the top of Trohornet and look down on Bø and Bøsanden, and then let your gaze follow the entire Lofoten Wall there west into the sea. You will be captivated!

Trohornet is located on Engeløya. About. 5 km from Ålstadcrossing, on the left. You park at the bus stop at Mølleskog. The tour starts at the sign. The whole trip is well marked with T’s and the path is cleared to a decent width. After passing a gate just after the start, you soon turn right through the birch forest. Soon the sedge appears, the heaviest part of the trip. Then you are up in more glistening birch forest, and the path flattens out. Just where you leave the forest belt, turn left and follow the path and cairns up the slopes. Follow the path further until you go down into a small valley and then up through a stone clock. After a few hundred meters you are at the cairn at the top.

This hike is one of Saltens Friluftsråd’s selected 55 captivating hikes in the region.
