Hike Munken to see the beautiful Lofoten mountains from above. Add on a stay a night at the Munkebu cabin close to the peak for the full experience.
This adventure is a relatively easy hike up to Munken in Lofoten. The trail starts very close to the ocean and goes all the way up to 769 meters above sea level. On the way up you will pass by Munkebu which is a cabin operated by the Norwegian Trekking Association. An overnight stay at the cabin gives you the possibility to experience the Lofoten mountains by night while staying cozy and warm inside the cabin.
Stay in the cabin.
Alternatively, in Reine there is accommodation available in traditional “rorbuer”, the trademark red fisherman’s cottages.
Tips and hints
- It is definitely worth staying a night at Munkebu. You will need a key if you want to stay at the Munkebu DNT cabin. You can get the key at the tourist information office in Moskenes. Note that you will need to become a paying member of DNT to get the key. See more information about Munkebu on Lofoten Turlag's pages.
- There are multiple small creeks and ponds along the trail so you should be able to get water along this trail.
The trail starts right next to Sørvågvatnet. There is a parking area on the western side of the lake if you arrive by car.
If you arrive by bus, you want to hop off at the Sørvågen Vest bus stop. For more information check the timetable for the bus traveling from Leknes to Å.
