Day 3: Off to Kabelvåg, but first we hike!

We all woke up with sore legs – we felt it our calves and quads which was insane for me since I never had this feeling after hiking before! We were leaving our Airbnb at Tind, as we wanted to be closer to Svolvær as we’ll be catching the 6am ferry back to Bodø on day 5.

We made breakfast before saying goodbye to our cozy home.

We were making a couple of stops before our Airbnb at Kabelvåg – starting our morning with a hike.

Offersoykammen was the one and it was no easy feat. It was nothing but steep incline which would’ve been tiring even if we weren’t sore. The incline + the how warm the weather was was a double whammy.

I didn’t get too many pictures but here’s a couple from my IG story.

It took us a hour+ to get up there which was average. We did see a lot of native hikers who were doing the hike like it was nothing! Jealous of how easy they were doing it.

Not surprising but the view at the top was amazing. Windy but beautiful. We took in the view, rested and took some time to take photos but we had to trek back down.

Usually I’m more of a decline type of guy since I felt that going down was way easier than going up. With all the soreness, I felt that incline was less painful than decline. I did not enjoy going down at all especially if it’s steep. At one point I was thinking to myself that if there was a safe and foolproof way to roll down the hill it would be the option I would take.

After that exhausted hike, our next stop was Leknes. A small town where almost everything was closed since it was 5pm on a Sunday. We stopped by a cafe called Huset Kaffebar for some caffeine and snacks before we continued our drive north.

45 minutes or so later, we ended up in Henningsvær to grab dinner at a restaurant called Lofomat. This was the best meal I had so far and I definitely recommend it for dinner if you’re even in town.

We got mussels, both specials of the day which was pan fried fish, king crab soup, seafood pasta, beer tenderloin, lamb shank and the risotto. The risotto was my favorite but their mussels were one of the best I ever had.

After that big meal, we had to walk it off and there was no better way to do so than exploring the town a bit. To my surprised, despite a lot of stores and shops being closed because it was a Sunday evening, I haven’t seen this many people walking around since the Oslo airport. The town was cute too!

We were heading to our Kabelvåg Airbnb but we couldn’t help but to make two more stops to see the sunset. The first was along the highway of E10 which had an okay view but we saw this beach Rorvikstranda and just had to stop there.

The colors were beautiful and those clouds completed the whole view. It was a great last activity before getting to our Airbnb.
