Nature treks

There are marked hiking trails throughout the entire Vesterålen area, and they may be used during both summer and winter. The routes are easily accessible and are found almost anywhere one wants to explore.

There are two marked coastal trails, each described by a separate brochure. One is located in Bø (Straumsjøen - Spjelkvågen) and the other in Andøya (Stave - Bleik). There is also a touring map with several suggested trip itineraries. The map is also very suitable for use as a road map.
There are aslo marked trails to the Norwegian Trekking Association's cabins in Vesterålen. The local hiking association has cabins both in the mountains and along the seashore. There is a sharing agreement between Vesterålen Tourism and the local hiking association. You may borrow keys to the cabins at the regioanl tourist office, Vesterålen Tourism at Sortland.
Ask for the brochures containing route suggestions and descriptions at the local tourist information. You can also visit Vesterålen Hiking Associations's website at, www.turistforeningen.no/vesteralen, if you want information about the seasonal excursion programs or the local hiking association's cabins in Vesterålen.
