Keiservarden is 366 m above sea level and climbing to the summit is not a very demanding hike.The view from the top  you might be able to see the silhouette of the Lofoten, the islands of Vry and Rst (the two outermost islands in Lofoten). To the east you will see the many peaks of the spectacular Brvasstind mountain range and the mountains near the Swedish border.Stone stairs  several alternative routes lead to the top.
