Norwegian Mountains, Nordland
Hatten is a characteristic peak located at the foothills of the Lukttinden - Dårtindan mountain massif. Geographically, this is approx. half-way between Sandnessjøen and Okstindan on the east-west axis. This mountain top must not be confused with Hatten near Hattfjelldal.
From Nævervegen (the route described below), the distance to the top is 4,5km. 2,2km along a tractor road, and 2,3km off-trail. It is a bit strange that such a characteristic - and accessible peak does not have a marked trail to the top. Don't be discouraged by the cliffs on top. There is an easy route!
Hatten (Norge 1:50,000: 713m, Økonomisk Kartverk: 712,87m, UTM 33 W 431041 7321684) has a primary factor of 403m towards the Lukttinden (1343m). The defining saddle (approx. 33 W 432153 7321832) is at Jordbrua. Ref. Norge 1:50,000 (20m contours), the saddle is within the range 300-320m, interpolated to 310m.
