Stetind is a classic Norwegian peak nearly 1400 metres above sea-level . Well known among mountain climbers, and has been so for a long time. The top of the peak looks as if it has been formed by four blows of an axe, three vertical and one crosswise. For ages it has been a landmark (also among fishermen in Lofoten) which, well visible from far off, rises high above other nearby peaks.
Norway’s national mountain – no wonder why Stetind in 2002 was voted to be Norway’s national mountain. Stetind is described as a perfect obelisk in pure granite with sweeping ridges rising straight from the fjord.
William C. Slingsby, the British father of Norwegian mountaineering said about Stetind: “The ugliest mountain I ever saw”. Perhaps this had something to do with his failure at achieveing the summit. Stetind was first ascended in 1910. Stetind is 1392 m high and of natural reasons one of the most famous and celebrated mountains in Norway. Its shape is like a giant needle. See it and you’ll never forget it. The peak is a “world in itself”, formed by screes and steep, smooth and slippery slopes of naked rock.
