Hiking under the midnight sun - Queen's Route

The Queen's Route between Nyksund and Stø is one of the most famous and spectacular hiking trails in Vesterålen. In the summer we also offer this tour under the midnight sun.

This hiking trail is off to the side so you rarely hike in a crowd and queue. You also pass several exciting and historic places on the trip.

The entire round trip back to the starting point takes between 5 and 8 hours. You can start in Nyksund or in Stø. The highest point is 450 meters above sea level, and the lowest point is with the toes into the sea on beautiful Skipssanden beach. The view is breathtaking, out to the ocean throughout the hike.

Our guides have many good stories to tell. If you do not want to go the whole round we will gladly order a boat taxi for you.

The tour starts at 22:00 at Holmvik Brygge in Nyksund. We start by hiking up the mountain so that we are at the highest points around midnight. The trip goes from Nyksund to Stø and by car or boat back to Nyksund including a hot meal (when we are back in Nyksund).


Adults: NOK 850,-
Children: (5-14): NOK 460,-
