Overview

The Seven Sisters form a majestic chain of peaks overlooking the shipping channel plied by the Hurtigruten. Thrusting their heads 1,000 metres above the shoreline, they form a dramatic backdrop to the myriad of islands and lush cultural landscape. Their beauty may be admired equally well from the deck of the Hurtigruten coastal route as from a bike out on one of the islands. But as with all natural beauties, close contact brings the greatest pleasures.

For those who are fit for the toughest challenge, it is actually possible to climb atop each of the Seven Sisters on the same day, but most people are quite content to ascend one or two peaks at a time.

Ascent from Breimo
Botnkrona(1072 m) is the highest of the Seven Sisters. The trail is quite manageable, although a bit steep right before the summit.

Grytfoten(1019 m) is a nice, steady climb. Parking is available at Elvåsen power station. The trail starts at Markvoll.

Skjæringen(1037 m) and Tvillingene (the Twins – 945 and 980 m) are well suited for a family walk, with trails that climb slowly and steadily without rocky obstacles, and you have access to clean, fresh water the whole way. Each of these peaks offers a great view – and there is a nice route that takes you to all three of them. Parking is available at the trailhead.

Ascent from Søvik
Kvasstinden(1010 m) – the last ascent does give some people a sense of vertigo. Before starting your ascent, you must cross a marshy area.

Breitinden(910 m) is the lowest of the Seven Sisters, but the first part of the trail is nonetheless a fairly steep climb. Then it levels off to a more even and relaxed incline. Parking is available by the sign at Søvikskaret.

Conquering several Sisters
Hikers who have chosen to climb several sisters, and who may be carrying a heavier backpack, will be pleased to know they don’t need to haul it up every peak. Tvillingene (the Twins), Botnkrona and Kvasstinden have the same route up and down.

Important information – be mindful of the Norwegian Mountain Code:
- Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected. Turn around in case of fog or bad weather.
- Choose proper footwear with a good grip. The rocky slopes can become very slippery when it rains.
- Bring windproof clothing. Even in the summer, it may be quite cold on the mountaintops.
- Make sure to charge your mobile phone, in case you need to call for help.

The Sandnessjøen Tourist Information Office offer trail maps.
