Olstind, as it rises from the waters of the Kjerkfjord is probably the most iconic mountain view of the Lofoten Islands.  It is often a scene that literally says ‘take a picture of me.’  Changing angles from Hamnøy towards Reine can give a different look to the mountain.  My favorite view (below photo) is from down near where the E10 crosses to Andøya.  It’s best to walk out on the rocks to get the most unobstructed view.  Though be careful of an incoming tide, I almost got stuck out there on a lone rock when not quite paying enough attention.
