DJUPFJORD


The road to Henningsvær crosses the narrow neck of Djupfjord on a causeway, and a quick 'eyes-left' will reveal a mountain-side of high quality granite running along the eastern side of the fjord. This is the flanks of Budalstinden. Beyond the end of the fjord, and rising above the freshwater lake of Djupfjordvatnet (hidden from the road) is the great spur that forms the north west buttress of Vågakallen which terminates in Point 713m, and is known to climbers simply as "Pillaren" (the Pillar), it is home to one of the most sought-after routes on Lofoten; the great easier classic of Bare Blåbær.
