Stetinden, or Stetind as most people say, is a granite giant located in Ofoten (Nordland county), and the peak has historically been an important coastal landmark. In Norwegian climbing history, this peak is legendary, and has (unofficially) been voted to be the National Mountain of Norway.

The mountain rises more than 1390m up from sea level and form a nearly flat summit plateau. Anvil-shaped, or as Peter Wessel Zappfe said it: an anvil whereupon the Gods can hammer.
