Piggtind

Yesterday we finally went to visit Piggtind.

Piggtind is a beautiful and iconic mountain located in the south of Lyngen, and separates the boarders of Storfjord, Balsfjord and Tromsø kommune. It is 1505 meters above sea level and we startet the trip on about 120 meters above sea level at the east side, and parked by Fjellås.

Peter Wessel Zapffe, a well known Norwegian mountaineer has written about the mountain in his book “Barske Glæder” under the chapter “fire korstog til Piggtind”.

It is a fantastic trip in beautiful surroundings, with an iconic peak, were you need to use rope and climbing techniques to summit.
