Reinebringen Hike 2019, Lofoten (Norway)

Reinebringen

Take the old road, which has since become a cycle lane and which avoids the tunnel south of Reine. So, if you absolutely must have this view, then hike Reinebringen. Camping There are not many good camping options for Mannen. At the top during midnight, with the midnight sun behind the mountains in Kirkefjorden. Where We Stayed We stayed in Hamnøy at. Loop A loop route, also known as a circuit, brings you back to the start while avoiding retracing your steps. We spent a rainy day in Reine and all day the top of Reinebringen was stuck in the clouds.

The view from the top of Reinebringen truly is spectacular. This is just another example of how social media is influencing where people choose to travel. If this parking lot is full, drive into Reine and park by the harbor. There is still short section of a muddy, rocky trail near the summit. It was the attraction I was most excited for in Lofoten and I thought it best to make hay while the midnight sun shines. Despite the late hour, there was still quite a bit of activity around the mountain.

For your own safety, hikers are advised to choose other mountains to walk until the new trail up Reinebringen is finished. If these are knocked loose by a hiker above you, they could hit you, causing a severe injury. In fact, on August 24, 2019, a lady was injured when she was struck on the head by a falling rock and she had to be airlifted off of the mountain. In Lofoten, you have plenty of good alternatives. Sprawling out in front of you are the tiny islands of Reine, Hamnøy, and Sakrisøy, with a backdrop of tall, rocky mountains. A significant portion of the Reinebringen hike feels like a Choose Your Own Adventure story, without the opportunity to skip ahead and see if your path will lead to success or certain doom. Be sure to check the weather and climb on a clear night, and leave plenty of time to reach the top before the sun dips below the horizon! There are a total of 1566 stone stairs along the first three-quarters of the trail.

The work is scheduled to start during spring 2016. Distance and duration calculations are based on the total trip. A summer afternoon on Mannen with blue skies over head and the azure waters of Haukland, Vik, their white sands ending in bright green fields, will remind you more of a scene from the tropical islands of the South Pacific than several hundred kilometers inside the arctic circle. If you have photos of these new steps, either taken in 2019 or 2020, and would like to add them to this post, with photo credit, let us know in the comment section below. What you need to know about the current condition of the trail, is that it is very worn out and steep, and rockfall is a constant danger to those who are hiking here. Several trails wind up the mountainside towards the ridge.

If you are and are , you will most likely have heard about the mountain Reinebringen, which gives you one of the most spectacular views in Lofoten. Also the trailhead has moved south by 20 or 30 meters. Instagram and Facebook have made this a very popular hike. After several hundred meters, you will see the cuttings of an old roadway winding up the hillside, along with a series of power lines heading over the low point of the pass. In summer, it is likely that multiple parties will attempt to camp on the mountain each night, so do not be surprised to find all suitable camping locations already occupied. Read below to find out how to navigate the perilous pitfalls of the Reinebringen hike. When I first saw this view several years ago, the Lofoten Islands got bumped up to the top of my travel wish list.

And though the steps have greatly improved the safety of the mountain, rockfall, mostly dislodged by hikers from above, remains an issue on the upper section of the mountain, especially so on crowded summer days. Moskenes Kommune asks that you only park in the following areas: Free: Djupfjord view point. Navigate the switchbacks, take as many breaks as you need, and be sure to look behind you from time to time and enjoy the view of your progress! The view currently comes with a warning Reinebringen is located above the village Reine and is easily accessible from the main road. With the upper section of the stairs not completed, rockfall is still a risk on this hike, especially with so much traffic and inexperienced hikers. From the parking area, Mannen is the peak rising above the tunnel. Parking as become a severe issue since the opening of the stairway in July 2019. If you choose to hike Reinebringen, you do this at your own risk.
