Just 30 minutes from Mosjøen, this popular summit tour caters to both beginners and experienced skiers. The ascent is relativly short, but the view is beautiful and the diverse terrain both above and belowe the tree line makes for excellent skiing back down again.
Degree of difficulty: Easy
Total distance: 7 km
Ascent: 765 meters
Duration one way: 1-2 hours
Trailhead: See the starting point with Google Maps
The first part of the walk goes over a flat marshland, before the ascent begins through fir forest and after each mountain birch, before the terrain opens up above the tree line. Parts of the route have been cleared of forest.
This is a snow-sure mountain that often offers nice loose snow, and without having to go into avalanche terrain. Nevertheless, check the avalanche warning and make independent assessments and take account of possible avalanche danger.
From the top of the Kveldstuva you will be rewarded with a lovely view towards the Okstind massif and Lukttinden.
Remember to check the weather forecast and the avalanche warning on the same day as the trip.
