The trailhead for this spectacular hike is just minutes from downtown Svolvær in Lofoten. In only two hours, you'll conquer more than a 600-meter altitude increase.
The first destination, Djevelporten (Devil's gate), is a rock that's wedged between Frosken and Fløya. The rock looks somewhat like a bridge, and you can even stand on it, but be careful! Here you can see the famous Svolværgeita mountain from a different angle, as well as Svolvær, Austnesfjorden, Oddvær, and Storemolla.
From Fløya, located at 590 meters above sea level, you have a slightly better view of what can be seen from Djevelporten.
