About Muletua

Muletua is a small mountain on the north side of Nerlandsøya island, in the western part of Herøy. The peak can found in a rugged coastal terrain and there is a steep drop towards the North Sea. However, the south side is quite gentle and very easy to hike.

Muletua is similar to the Runde Bird Island , which is located to the north and both are really good places to watch the sunset. 

Getting there

From Fosnavåg follow the signs towards the island Nerlandsøya. After you pass the bridge follow the signs in the direction of Kvalsvik. 

In Kvalsvika the road ends in a T-junction where you should turn left towards Mulevika. Just before the trailhead, there is a parking lot to the left. There is also a large parking lot at the end of the road. 

Trail description

It's easy to spot the trailhead from the road. Just look for the signs. 

You will pass a few trail junctions during the hike. Keep to the left, and you will find the way.  At the summit, there is also a small cabin. It's a nice place to rest if the wind is chilling.
