Kayaking around Børvatnet lake

This kayak trip goes around the lake Børvatnet in Bodø municipality. Børvatnet lies between the mountain range of Børvasstindene and Børnupen mountain, so here you will get a gorgeous scenery all the way around the lake. This is a quite long trip that ends up at around 10 kilometers, which took about 4 hours with a calm speed, a couple of breaks to stretch the back, and some photo sessions along the way. If you just kayak for the exercise you should be able to this trip a lot faster. To get to the parking lot by the lake you have to drive up a dirt road in the forest that's a bit bumpy, but for most cars, this should not be a problem
