Vetle Skagastølstinden (or Vesle Skagastølstind) is one of the peaks constituting Skagastølstindane ("Skagastøl peaks") in the Hurrungane mountain range, and is among Norway's highest. The 2,340-metre (7,680 ft) tall mountain is located in the eastern part of the municipality of Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It lies directly between the mountains Midtre Skagastølstind, Store Skagastølstind, and Sentraltind. The mountains Store Styggedalstinden and Jervvasstind lie 1.5 kilometres (0.93 mi) to the east, and the village of Skjolden lies 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) to the west.[1][2]


The first element is the genitive of the name of the mountain farm Skagastølen and the last element is tind which means "mountain peak". The mountain farm (dairy farm) Skagastølen belongs to the farm Skagen in Luster and stølen is the finite form of støl which means "mountain farm". Skagen is the finite form of skage which means "headland" or "promontory" and the name is equivalent with the famous Skagen in Denmark. The words vetle and vesle mean "the small".
