A fine, granite slab beyond the head of Djupfjorden is home to one of Lofoten’s most popular, long routes, Bare blåbær or Only Bilberries, a Norwegian expression meaning an easy task. Approach - Park just north of causeway across Djupfjorden. Follow the Djupfjorden trail along the northern shore of the fjord to the terminal moraine (Moan in Norwegian) that separates the upper freshwater lake and the fjord. Keep left, heading for the grove of pine trees and follow the path until just short of the freshwater lake of Djupfjordvatnet, at which point a path dives rightwards into the wood. Cross the small stream and head for the open gully between the two slabby outcrops. Scramble up this then head out left onto the spur, continue leftwards under an easy-angled slab which leads to the base of the main slab 60 minutes from the road.
