I’ve just added a new hiking guide for the 600 meter high peak of Markan, located on Moskenesøy.


Markan was perhaps my favorite hike of the trip, no doubt due to some of the most fantastic light I’ve experienced while in the mountains of Lofoten.  And to think I could have easily missed this one and headed elsewhere as the weather was considerably worse than the forecast.  I actually spent a couple nights camping at the pass below the summit to use as a base to explore several more mountains in the area due to the somewhat long, and more importantly, boggy approach – best to get wet feet only once.

Anyhow, enjoy the page, and maybe give thought to heading up there yourself one day, the whole area is really wonderful and scenic…
