Enjoy some rest-bite from the prolonged, steep ascents that are so common in Lofoten on this easy going loop walk from Haukland to Uttakleiv with great views of the Huakland’s white sand beach.  Begin in the car park for Haukland Beach, ascend gradually at first and then a little more steeply until reaching the high point of today’s hike at less than 200 m.  With views over the fields of Uttakleiv, only recently connected to Haukland via the tunnel built only in 1998, descend to walk between its fields.  From the car park in Uttakleiv follow a good track all the way around the headland with wonderful views onto Haukland Beach to arrive where you began.


Before you go download a QR code scanner onto your phone so hat you can scan the QR codes on the signposts you'll see along the route - each has a short story to tell!

The route follows path, wide gravel tracks and uses roads on 2 short sections.  The hardest part of the route is at the start - the ascent over to Uttakleiv - take your time while ascending the dirt and gravel path between the boulders as it can be slippery.  You may find walking poles useful here.  Take care and look out for traffic on the sections on the road.

Points of Interest

Haukland Beach

The beautiful white sand beach where you begin the hike.  Here there’s a car park over a couple of levels and a public toilet.  Find out more about the area on this link:


QR Codes

Throughout the route you’ll pass a number of signposts by the path with numbers and a QR code on them.  If you have a QR code reader on your phone you can scan them to get little nuggets of information along the trail. 


The small farming settlement on the other side of the hill from Haukland was only recently connected by road via the tunnel in 1998.  Before this time the children who lived here were often prevented from getting to school because of avalanches blocking the track to Haukland!


Food & Drink

There is nowhere en route to eat or drink, but there a small gallery and craft shop at Haukland (check opening times!) where you can buy drinks and snacks nearby. You’ll find it in the Kraftstasjonen – the white building with the faces painted on it.  Otherwise, it’s a 35 minute drive to Nusford, or just 15 minutes to the much larger, although not particularly scenic, town of Leknes.
