Hamarøyskaftet is not a very difficult climb, but you will still need ropes and guiding to reach the top. You must be comfortable with some airy climbing. Between the alpine sections, you will find large ledges to rest on while you enjoy the amazing views.
When you reach the summit, you will be rewarded with views of the Vestfjord and Lofotveggen (The Lofoten Wall) – the line of mountains on the nearby Lofoten Islands.
No rush. We allow plenty of time on this excursion, so we don’t have to rush. If you are wondering whether you can climb Stetind (Norway’s national mountain), climbing Hamarøyskaftet will give you a good indication of how you tackle heights. We recommend you start with Hamarøyskaftet before you decide to climb Stetind.
Looks steep. Hamarøyskaftet looks steep and virtually unclimbable at first glance, but don’t be put off. Most people manage this rewarding climb just fine. The mountain is known locally as Hamarøykuken as it resembles the male genitalia.
