Stetind - Norway's national mountain

Date: Thursday 12 may 2016 - Thursday 28 Jun 2018 Show map

Not only is Stetind Norway's national mountain, it is also a popular mountain for mountaineering and hiking enthuisiasts.

The mountain Stetind is a well known land mark for the sailors along the coast. The vertical, steep mountain with looks like an anvil, rises majestically from the sea.

Stetind was in 2002 selected as Norway's national mountain, and is also a favored place for peak climbers.

The known professor and philosopher Arne Næss established himself as King of Stetind when he in the late 1930's introduced bolt climbing in Norway. A number of impressive technical routes brought him to the top.

If you want to climb the mountain, guided tours are arranged, and Magnus from Narvik Mountain Guides (www.narvikguides.no) is a certified IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Stetind is located in the municipality of Tysfjord, about 90 km south of Narvik.
