Fykantrappa up to Rallarbrakka

The Fykan stairs are no longer open to the public due to their bad condition and rockslide risk. Here you can see what the hike looked like at least

This hike went to the amazing Fykan stairway in Meløy, with Rallarbrakka on the top as the endpoint. To get to the start point you have to drive the road along Fykanvatnet lake which is located between the two tunnels Fykantunnelen and Svartistunnelen. When you approach the tunnel on this road you turn left and continue to the largest parking lot. The hiking trail starts at the end of the parking lot, right next to a building. Before you reach the stairs you have to cross a bridge then follow a path in the forest. The stairs consist of 1129 steps going 300 meters up the mountainside in beautiful surroundings. Once you have reached the top you will find Rallarbrakka about 200 meters away. Rallarbrakka is open during the summer between around 23. June to 25. August. Here you can buy hot and cold drinks, cake, waffles, and other local foods as well as getting some stories about the Rallars served from the nice employees that work here. Estimated driving time from Bodø city is 2 hours and 14 minutes. Driving through the nature in Gildeskål and Meløy is a nice trip in itself
