Just about 20 mins from Harsrad, we hiked Keipen just after some rain and it was so serene and beautiful. The trailhead is very easy to find by typing ‘Keipen’ into google maps. Adorable trail markers guide the way to the top, so you’ll never...More

The walk to the top of Keipen is easy. For an inexperienced hiker like me it was approximately 30 minutes up and 30 minutes down. The views are amazing. The only downside are all the flies. All those flies made the whole walk less enjoyable.

Short drive from Harstad, great "value for money" regarding how short it is to walk to the top and the reward of the view. Great trip with children aged 4 and up. Bring something to drink and a snack and of course a proper camera...More

Easy uphill hike with some swampy sections. The view is spectacular even when it is cloudy. Some exposed areas on top.

Relatively easy hike up the hill. Takes about 30-40 minutes to the top and 15-20 minutes back to the starting point. You can get the driving instructions from Google Maps. Just set Keipen as the location. There's a little roadside parking space at the right...More

You drive over half the way, and then it is a short and not to exhausting trip up to the most amazing view. Free, and available for everyone, you can even go in the winter. If you like geocaching, there are a few caches near...More

We did this hike in early September and saw over 20 reindeer out in the marsh. As for the hike itself, the parking lot can be a little tricky to find. It is located on the left and if you start to go down hill...More
