Northern Norway Nordland BODØ

Hovdsanden (Bodø) – the spectaculare beach

  • Gildeskålveien 21, Bodø
  • +47 48099272
  •  /  km From You

This trip goes to a special beach in Hovdsundet between the mainland and the island Litlhovden. The narrow beach separates the ocean and forms a very special scenic experience. Both the view of the strait and the beach from the hill, and the opportunity to go down on the beach itself, give a truly unique experience.

The first part of the tour goes along the same route as the trip to Auvika. From Auvika we follow light hilly terrain along the coast, passing some beautiful stone beaches before we get a steep climb of approx. 80 - 90 meters wich takes us just above the beach. Then we go down to the beach itself.

The trip represents a more challenging terrain than the trip to Auvika, so you should be used to walk in terrain if you are going to complete this tour.

Start and finish
The tour begins and ends at Futskaret, situated at the top of the hill before the descent to Mjelle beach.

Transport to the starting point can be arranged.

Approx. 8 km round trip.

Duration of the tour
Round trip walking-time approx. 3 hour, depending on fitness and walking pace. The total length of the tour is approx. 3½ - 4½ hours.

In addition, approx. 25 minutes drive each way from Bodø city center.

Shoes and clothes should be appropriate for weather conditions at the time.
