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 kilometres, wich 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, if your car is very low you should proceed with caution, but for most cars this won’t be a problem
