Follow the forest road upwards for about 2 km. If you wish, you can take a detour to Tonnesgrotta and stop at the Grillhytta, which offers a great view early on in the trip.

There are two alternative routes up to Himmelbergtinden, and both are well-marked with red markers/poles. The trail is also mapped on Norgeskart Friluftsliv. The route over Garlitinden is 4 km, and the route along the “lia” is 4.7 km. Feel free to take one route up and the other route down.

At the top, you will be rewarded with views over the island realm of Lurøy, Rødøy, and Meløy, in addition to the mountain kingdom inland.

Parking: You can park at the store in Tonnes or at Tonnes Marina. There are a few spaces right where the forest road starts, but there should also be room for bus parking.

If you live or dine at Oscarbrygga, it’s a short walk along the road to the starting point.
