Bø in Vesterålen is known as “hikers paradise” – and with good reason. There are many beautiful trails in the mountain, along the coast and wooded waters. We will bring you along for different hikes, depending on the weather.

Vetten bua

On our way to Vetten (467 meters above sea level) we follow an easy trail with a few medium steep parts. After approximately 2 hours we reach the top, where you can enjoy a spectacular view of Bø, the Lofot-mountains and the islands Gaukværøy and Litløy. This is our favourite hike in the area. Reaching the mountain hut on the top we enjoy our packed lunch. If the weather is nice and there is time, we walk across Nåla to Lynghaugtinden (504 meters above sea level), before we head back.
