Seashore hike on Straumøya

This seashore hike starts by some boathouses at Straumøya, just across the fjord from Bodø city. From here you hike along the shore until you reach a nice little beach in a bay called Storteinsvika. This is an easy 3 kilometers long hike that takes around 45 minutes from the start point to the endpoint by the beach. Perfect hike to take on sunny summer or autumn days, but also during the spring, once the snow is gone. Here you hike along the fjord Saltenfjorden with a nice view towards the city of Bodø and Landegode island in the far background. The landscape along this route is mostly flat and goes on vegetation, rocks, and sand
