This kayak trip starts at Skjelstadsundet outside Bodø city and goes around the beautiful island of Vågøya. The start point is by an old radio antenna site that is long shut down, so you don’t have to worry about the warning signs on the way to the parking lot. The beach where you embark on your journey is located a bit away from the parking lot, so here you will have to carry or drag the kayak a bit before you can start. This is a bit of extra work as you can’t park as near the start point as most other kayak trips on this site, but this trip sure is worth it. On your way around Vågøya you will get gorgeous nature with several straits, beaches and islands to explore. The distance on this trip ended up at 10.9 kilometres wich took around 3 hours and 45 minutes with calm speed, photo sessions and a couple of breaks on land
