Dronningruta [The Queen's Route]

  •  /  km From You
Overview

Dronningruta [The Queen's Route] is a marked trail about 15 km long and is a 'round trip' along the shoreline and over the mountain between Nyksund and Stø in Øksnes municipality in Vesterålen. If you are in good physical shape and are used to medium altitudes, this is the trip for you. Certain portions of the trip may seem challenging in terms of heights. The trip can be done in 5-8 hours. This is the route that Queen Sonja of Norway enjoyed trekking in 1994, hence the name 'Dronningruta'. . Considered quite challenging. Red route +++

You can get to Nyksund or Stø by local bus from Sortland, or by private car. By car, you need to take RV 820 from Sortland in the direction of Myre. At Frøskeland, you turn right onto RV 821. When you reach the centre of Myre, you turn onto FV 935 in the direction of Stø/Nyksund. It takes a little over an hour to drive to Stø or to Nyksund.

Description of the route
The trip is a round trip between Stø and Nyksund, and you decide on your own where you want to start. The highest point is Finngamheia (448 mas).
The route is signposted with the Hiking Association's Ts at the starting points and along the trail.
The hiking surface is mountain rock, earth, stone and peat. Parts of the route run along the shoreline. Along the beach areas, the route has peat and grass ground cover and can be wet. There is a sheep trail up the mountainside; at the summit, the ground is hard and stony. There is a steep section from both sides up to the mountain summit. Certain parts are secured with safety ropes.
Experiences along this route are numerous. The trip offers not only variation in hiking terrain and splendid vistas, but the starting and stopping points are also two very special sights. Nyksund is an old, once abandoned fishing village that has been resurrected through the efforts of artist residents and and the tourism industry. Stø is a small, charming and active fishing village.

Overnight accommodation
There are rooms/rorbu cabins/flats for hire in both Nyksund and Stø. There are also places for tenting or having a caravan at the local campsite.
