To Munken summit from the village of Sørvågen and back. Beautiful views along the hike, and an amazing 360 panorama at the summit. You have to work for it though.

Starting at the village of Sørvågen the trail ascents gently to the waterfall. Thereafter, you follow the shore of Stuvdalsvatnet. You’ll leave the shore behind by ascending some slabs using a set of chains. After this initial first steep part, you’re rewarded with the view on Tridalsvatnet. The trail is a bit flatter for a while. It starts ascending more steeply again when approaching the Djupfordheia. Arriving on top of this first summit gives you an impression of the views to come. Take a breath here and prepare for the final steep part up to the north summit of Munken. It is steep and strenuous, but the 360 panorama is worth it!

Prepare for a full day in the mountains and make sure to check the weather before leaving.
