Dalberget and Storhaugen

This is a nice walk through the forest to above the tree line. From Dalberget you have a great view of the Lyngenfjord and the Lyngen Alps.

Follow the forest road from Djupvik cemetery for about 200 m. When you come to a crossroads, turn left and then immediately afterwards right onto a small path. It can be wet here if it has rained recently.

After a bit of a climb, you reach the Storelva river. The path then continues northwards along the riverbank until you reach some signs. Follow the sign to “Storhaugen” while you are still in the forest.

This route crosses the river and goes steadily upwards. After a while you will see a cairn on the right side of the path, which marks Dalberget (approx. 460 m a.s.l.).

Alternative: There is no clear path to the summit of Storhagen (1,142 m a.s.l.). The terrain is even and fairly easy to walk, but there can be a lot of rocks. Be aware that when you reach the summit it is quite steep on the other side!
