The hike starts from Glomfjord Alpine Center in Meløy municipality. Here, you are fortunate to be able to take the chairlift up to approximately 500 meters above sea level, saving some elevation gain on the way up. From the top of the chairlift, there is a steady ascent of around 400 meters until you reach Tverrfjellet.
From the summit, you will enjoy a fantastic view over the fjord and the Meløy archipelago. The descent is great and suitable for beginners as well. You can choose to ski down the slope near the chairlift or continue further and ski down the Haugvik slope before reaching the alpine center.
