A hike with view: The route starts through sparse pine forests following a well-marked trail. This guided summit hike ascends 630 m over 3 km.

National Park & the sea: As the tree line is only 300 m up, you’ll have a great view all the way. To the east: the best view of Sjunkhatten National Park, a glacier-formed landscape with untouched fjords and inaccessible peaks. To the west? The open sea and the coastline.

Exposed summit: Reaching Mt. Litltind is not technically difficult, but the hike is steep in a few places. Reaching the true summit requires passing some scree, boulders and exposed scrambling up quite steep rocks.

No lazy stroll: The guided hike up Mt. Litltind is no lazy stroll. If you like peak bagging, then you know the big reward: the scenic view from the top and a new perspective on everything you hiked up to get there.
