Kalle - crossing the brook
Kalle in the Lofoten archipelago. From the road crossing in Hopendelet, follow the road markers to the sandy bay of Kalle. You can park your car near the bay (but mention the tides!) and follow a path along the bay. A path branches off from the few houses of Kalle and below the Vågekallen leads to the coast. In the small U-shaped valley of Øvredalen, a few miles away from Svolvaer or Kabelvåg, you feel transported into a primeval landscape. Only a few tents of climbers and hikers remind you that civilization is still not far away from here. This coastline is fascinating. Anyone who is good on foot, or even can climb a little, is in good hands here. The rugged, shatter-proof even when wet, reddish rock is great for bouldering, too. Climbing courses are organized here. Climbing the rocks offery a terrific view of the Vestfjorden with its archipelago and of the island Lille Molla. You can also watch the Hurtigruten ships passing by. Above it all rises the often cloud-shrouded high Vågakallen 942 m, the "Matterhorn" of Lofoten. About the 700 m high summit Storepillaren is being told to be the hardest route of the archipelago.
