Tour description
This walk makes it easy to reach a nice viewpoint without having to climb to a high altitude. Not everybody is inclined to climb steep hills or go for long hikes, so Linken is the perfect walk if you want an easy access to a high viewpoint.
This walk is nice all year. But if you walk here in the wintertime, please remember to check the weather forecast before you go, as it may be slippery with ice and snow.
Linken/Tjeldbergaksla are a small distance from the centre of Svolvær, and easy to get to. Linken is a small hilltop on the way up to Tjelbergtinden.
If you arrive by car, you can park in the city centre and walk to the starting point. It takes less than 20 minutes to walk from the centre of Svolvær to the starting point for the walk.
If you walk from the city centre, follow the cycle road towards Kabelvåg and follow the road on your right hand by the Esso petrol station. From Esso, you follow the road until you come to the fire station on your left hand side. Take a left just before the fire station and follow the road until you come to a sign pointing to "Tjeldbergtind". From here you follow the gravelled road all the way up to the top of Linken.
The road up the hill is very nice and surrounded by trees. On the way up, you will see the city of Svolvær and the beautiful mountains Løva and Kongstindan. When you come to the mast, you follow the small path behind the mast and then walk ca 150 metres to the viewpoint on the southern end.
If you would like a longer and steeper walk, you can follow the sign for Tjelbergtinden. This route goes further up to 367 metres above sea level.
