Sukkertoppen is a great starter hike on Senja. From the top there are views of Hamn resort and the surrounding coastline. In the summertime, a hike up to Sukkertoppen is a fantastic way to take in the midnight sun.
There are some steep parts and some exposure towards the top including a section with a chain. The peak is quite small so hike in the morning to avoid a crowd.
The trailhead is easy to access, about 850 meters from Hamn resort with plenty of parking at the resort and by the trailhead.
The last part of the trail can be slippery and difficult in wet conditions, so avoid this hike in poor weather. There is a viewpoint about one kilometer along the trail which is perfect for a shorter hike.
- Water is available from the lakes along the trail
Tips and hints
- The nearby resort Hamn i Senja has a good restaurant and toilets
Coming from Gryllefjord, park in the parking lot about 850 meters before reaching Hamn resort.
If you are a guest or customer at the resort, you can easily walk from there.
