From the parking, there are both T-marked and unmarked trails leading to grottoes and fishing lakes. Recommended map: Turkart for Meløy.
Svartisen glacier is just a short drive to the south, along Kystriksveien (road 17). To get to Svartisen you need to take s short (but beautiful) boatride accross the fjord Holandsfjorden. A visit to the glacier will take you 3-5 hours, depending on how close you want to get. The hike from the dock to the edge of the glacier is about one hour. You can rent a bike to travel the distance faster. Ask the boat staff for bike rental.
The best way to explore Svartisen is by joining a guided tour on the ice. There are two local companies providing this service: Meløy Adventure and Beyond Limits.
Right next to Brestua (the cafe/center on Svartisen) you will find a moose farm. Kiss a moose if you dare!
