About Festvågtind

Festvågtind is a stunning hike that rises directly from the sea near the southern tip of Austvågøya in the Lofoten Islands. Although it seems like a very steep hike, the trail wraps around the back side, giving a gradual ascent the entire way up. Once at the summit you'll get breathtaking views south over the town of Henningsvær and the surrounding islands. You can park either at the buildings just west of the trailhead or at the pullout just east of the trail along the road 816.
