Om Mannen

Mannen overlooks three gorgeous beaches on Lofoten: Haukland Beach, Uttakleiv Beach, and all of Yttersia. Haukeland is the starting point of the trip and is known to have the whitest beach of all the islands. 

Although the peak itself is rather small, 400 meters above sea level, Mannen provides some incredible views of not only the beaches but also the surrounding ocean and islands.

Veibeskrivelse

The trail begins from Haukland Beach, which is about a 15 minute drive from Leknes. The detour off road E10 is part of Norwegian Scenic Route Lofoten.

Coming from Leknes, drive along the E10 towards Å. After 6 kilometers turn right on to Offersøyveien, following the signs to Haukland.

Continue for 2.4 kilometers and then turn left onto Voieveien. After about 5 kilometers you will arrive at the beach, where there is plenty of parking.

Turbeskrivelse

From the parking area, cross the street and follow the trail to the tunnel. The trip begins rather steep, but slowly flattens out and becomes easier further into the hike. Upon reaching the top of the hill, turn left, and continue hiking along the winding road that has many power lines. You will then hike along the backside of the peak. 

The cliffs are especially steep near the top, and the grass often covers the path, so be very aware of your footing. The trail will flatten near the top, before the final rise to the summit.
