Kayaking between Hjertøyene in Bodø

This kayak trip starts at Kvalvika beach, located just outside the Bodø city center, and goes between the islands of Hjertøyene. Here you kayak in beautiful nature between the islands, with the city just on the other side. If you are going late in the day you might want to kayak along the outer island first before the sun sets, by doing so you will have the sun with you both ways. This trip is around 10 kilometers long, which takes about 2 hours with calm kayaking speed and a couple of breaks on land to stretch the back and have a snack. When crossing over from the start point, watch out for any boats
