Our start point is in the end of a beautiful round fjord at the coast of Barents sea. It is just one and half hour drive from Kirkenes and honestly, a sightseeing location worth hiking to. And it doesn’t even take huge effort to reach. Only 6km walk in total and doable in three hours.
The path goes mostly on old dirt road base. In the end of the trail we climb on top of a rocky mountain to the look out. This is all possible to do with your everyday shoes. Just be a little careful if it has just rained. On top we make light food and enjoy the views good time. In the direction we came from you can see Barents sea and its beautiful lively coastline. Then when you look further into the way we started, you see only rocky, high mountains after another. The hard and unforgiving wilderness; Gallok. There is also crystal clear lake nearby. The lake water is good to drink and you can catch arctic char and trout from it.
This is a wonderful way to experience Norwegian mountains and the Arctic sea during the same day. You reach spectacular view within reasonable effort.
