Svartvatnet Lake hike in Lofoten

I wanted to avoid windy and fog covered peaks this day, so a hike up to Svartvatnet lake turned out to be a very good choice when the wind comes from southwest… but don’t forget that no wind means more damn mosquito’s 😮

We took the same way as we did last year hiking up to Solbjørnvatnet lake. Arriving at the lake me and puppy followed the trail to the left (instead of to the right) this time.Svartvatnet lake hike Lofoten landscape easy hiking lapphund

It is possible to follow a trail along one side of Svartvatnet lake – where we also spotted some nice potential camp spots. We turned when reaching a little river, but the trail seems to be continued.  Svartvatnet lake Lofoten solbjornvatnet landscape easy trail hiking lapphund

 

Still ice on the lake, so a very refreshing dip is possible. But I was very satisfied with this mirroring lake view – in between these mountains we where well protected from the wind, but not from the mosquito’s 😀Svartvatnet lake Lofoten solbjornvatnet landscape easy hiking lapphund
