Photo: Summer day over Haukland beach, Vestvågøy, Lofoten Islands, Norway. June 3, 2015. 15:43
It’s always good to start a Lofoten trip with sunshine! Having arrived by ferry in the mornight, picked up my van from Arctic Campers in Ramberg a couple hours later, I next found myself heading up the trail to Mannen (see hiking guide HERE), under a nice blue sky.
The view from Mannen over the crystal blue waters of Haukland beach is one of Lofoten’s most Iconic views. And at 400 meters, with a gentle trail to the summit, I like to think of Mannen as having one of the best views-for-effort ratios on Lofoten.
The view looks south, so it’s better to hike in early morning or late afternoon to avoid the sun glaring off the water.
