Om Helvetestind

Helvetestind (Hell’s peak) rises up as a pinnacle between Bunes beach and Horseidstranda providing great views of the two beaches as well as larger parts of Lofoten.

The trail begins in Vindstad, a ferry ride from Reine, and follows the start of the trail to the popular Bunes beach adventure but quickly finds its own trail up to the top. You can easily do both of these adventures on the same day. If you’re not camping overnight, make sure to double check the ferry schedule so you don’t miss the return journey.

Avoid this hike in bad weather as it makes it very difficult to safely traverse the ridge to the top.

Veibeskrivelse

To get to the trailhead you need to take a ferry across Reinefjorden, from Reine to Vindstad. The boat leaves daily from Reine so check the timetable for specific times. If you are not already in Reine you can usually find a parking spot in Reine, or check the bus timetable.

Travel Pass Nordland offers cheap 7-day travel in Nordland county. It is valid for all buses and passenger ferries in Lofoten, including the boat across Reinefjorden. 

Turbeskrivelse

The trail follows a narrow gravel road from Vindstad, passing through the village. Just before the road ends you will see a sign to Bunes Beach on your left-hand side. Follow this trail until you get the first glimpses of the beach and then start looking for a trail to the right. You will find multiple smaller trails before you see one that is a bit larger. Follow this trail up towards the mountain. There are some areas with a bit of exposure before you reach the top, but the summit itself is fairly flat.

Fasiliteter

  • There is an outhouse available by Bunes Beach 
  • Bring your own water as can be hard to find running water.
  • In July you could get lucky and grab something to eat at the Amanda Cafe at Vindstad. The cafe is driven by the community and is not always open, so do not rely on it. 

Overnattingsmuligheter

Reine is the closest town with accommodation available in traditional “rorbuer”, the trademark red fisherman’s cottages.
