Lukttinden is a 1,343-metre (4,406 ft) tall mountain in the municipality of Vefsn in Nordland county, Norway. The mountain lies between the towns of Mo i Rana and Mosjøen, directly east of the lake Ømmervatnet and directly south of the lake Luktvatnet. The better-known Okstindene is located just to the east, although Lukttinden is well known for its glacier and for having easier hiking conditions.

Name

The mountain is named after the lake Luktvatnet. This name is probably from the Southern Sami language word Loektejaevrie, a compound of loekti which means 'inlet' and jaevrie which means 'lake', thus "the lake with many inlets". The suffix -tinden is the finite form of tind meaning 'mountain peak'.
