Kalle - ebb tide

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 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. If you are good on foot, better yet, who can climb or boulder, is in good hands here. Climbing courses are organized in Kalle. There are also hiking paths in the area. 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 942 m high Vågakallen mountain, often called the "Matterhorn" of Lofoten. The path to the 700 m high summit Storepillaren is being told to be the hardest route of the archipelago.
