About

3-4 hour hike to the top of Dronningvarden (the queens cairn) at Stortinden close to Årsteinen.

at the Entrance to Raftsundet the 530 meter high Stortinden shoots out of the water. the lonely top has an amazing view of Vestfjorden, Ofoten, Hamarøy and Steigen of Landegod just outside Bodø to the south. the hike is a 2 hour walk on a well trodden path from Årstein village to the top.

H.M. queen Sonja has visited the top twice in the recent years, this top was a natural choice for a lasting memory of the Queens enthusiasm for the mountains in general and the district more specifically. its Norways first Queens cairn which H.M. Queen Sonja inaugurated in july 2016.
