Have you ever wondered how it looks at the other side of Reine‘s famous spectacular mountain views? Well, wonder no more my dear readers .. curious or not, in just a short and easy hike you can see for yourself these wonderful views hiding behind Rein’s looming front peaks.
Me and my puppy Jenta took the bus from Tind/Å at the end of Lofoten (where I am based for the moment) via Reine – and got off the bus directly after the Fjøsdaltunnelen (ask the bus driver kindly if he/she can drop you off at the first pocket at Fjøsdalen after the tunnel (not so far from Soløya bus stop)).
The easy trail starts from the little recycling plant in Fjøsdalen. About 35 minutes later you will be up at the pass and already see parts of lake Solbjørnvatnet. If you follow the trail to the right you will shortly get on top of Okstinden with super nice views over the lakes, mountains and fjords, among this the little beautiful lake Svartvatnet to the left surrounded by steep mountain peaks.
From the top of Okstinden I could see the trails continue around both sides of Solbjørnvatnet lake, so hopefully next time will be a longer hike around here to discover more in this area, and of course – bring my fishing rod along as this lake is full of trouts!
