Hiking on Gammelveien

Experience Hammerfest by foot!

Hiking on the historic «Gammelveien»-path takes you around Salen, the town mountain.

Here you will find a beautiful view over Hammerfest, it’s unique churches, neighbouring islands Seiland and Sørøya, and Melkøya LNG plant. You’ll meet a cannonball on a pole, a reindeer fence surrounding the town and the little lake Storvannet. Before you descend back to town on the Zig-zag path, we recommend that you stop by the view point and enjoy the spectacular scenery of Hammerfest bay. One of our experienced guides will join you on this tour, and share interesting facts on Hammerfest and it’s history.
This tour is suitable for those with some previous experience on hiking. There is one steep uphill on the route. Warm drinks and some snacks will be served on the way. Starting point is by the tourist information office close to the Hurtigruten pier.
