This circular route is an outstanding day hike that starts just outside of Hammerfest and leads you through impressive Arctic landscape, via rivers, multiple lakes and mountain tops. It starts at Tunnelbakken. From there you walk along the gravel road for about 1.5 km and then follow the sign to Glimmevannshytta over a small bridge on your left, which is a ca 4 km hike. Once at Glimmevannshytta, a small hut, follow to Rundvannshytta (another 3 km). On the way back you join the gravel road again (ca. 4.5 km).
