Arrival to Lyngseidet by car/bus and ferry via Tromsö.

In Lyngenseidet to the hiking park of the Skihytta (ski hut) in the community Eidebakken.

Route description
Starting point:

Starting point is the hiking car park in Eidebakken on the south-western edge of Lyngseidet.

Ascent:

From the hiking car park follow the signs to Skihytta. The trail is marked with small reflectors to the hut. From the hut you continue to climb towards S-W towards the well visible summit. At about 700m the steep ascent (>30°) to the summit ridge begins, which is followed southwards to the summit. On the summit ridge you have to pay attention to cornices - mostly on the east side.

Descent:

Option 1: Along the ascent path over the summit ridge.

Option 2: Direct descent on the eastern slope of the summit until the terrain flattens out a little (approx. 800m) here you head northwards towards the ascent path and follow it into the valley.
