Upper Åselivatnet lake outside Bodø

This hike starts at a parking lot located a 40 minutes drive from Bodø city, on the hilltop right before Fjell when driving towards Gildeskål municipality. From here the hike goes mostly on a rocky landscape, and through a little bit of forest here and there until you reach the beautiful upper Åselivatnet lake. There are markings along the way here with signs and paths most of the way, so you will easily spot where to go. This hike is around 3.73 kilometres long, which takes about 1 hour from the parking lot to the endpoint at the inner side of the lake. Here you get a nice view of the majestic Børvasstindene mountain range. If you want to shorten this hike down a bit, you might just as well stop at the outer edge of the lake. The hike to Åselivatnet is best to take during the summer or autumn season
