Hoven Summit, Lofoten Islands


Hoven, Gimsøy, Lofoten Islands

Hoven is a small mountain (aka hill) on the northern part of the island Gimsøy which belongs to the chain of Lofoten Islands. The hike to the summit is not necessarily a big challenge for experienced hikers. While the mountain itself is not that high, it does stand alone amongst flatlands which means as a photographer you have an unobstructed 360° view of the coast and surrounding landscape. 

Hiking Hoven: Getting There

There is a parking lot to the left of the golf course Lofoten Links which has signs pointing to the trail, which is pretty easy to follow (highlighted on the map).
