Cycling in Sulitjelma

Route description

This route starts at the old mining town of Sulitjelma. You can either cycle to the “Ny-Sulitjelma” tourist cabin, where you may stay overnight, or on the road to lake Lomivannet – or both. Both routes have the same starting point in Sulitjelma and follow the same road much of the way.

To get to Sulitjelma from Bodø, drive out of the city and follow the signs to Fauske and then towards Sulitjelma. The drive from Bodø to Sulitjelma takes approx. 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Tips for your bike ride:

  • 55 Forførende friluftsmål (enticing outdoor destinations) – often 55FF – are specially selected, attractive hiking destinations in Salten ranging from easy walks to more demanding hikes. Read more about 55FF here.
  • Change your cycling direction and time of day to suit the weather and other wishes. Remember it’s light 24/7 here during the summer. You can always turn back or replace stages by express boat (if possible).
  • Bring a bike pump, tyre lever, extra bike tube and multi-tool suitable for your bike. There are few bicycle operators in the district.
  • Bring a water bottle. The water from mountain streams is mostly drinkable.
  • Check the opening hours of the grocery stores you plan to use before you set off.
  • Leave as few physical traces as possible and always dispose of your rubbish responsibly.
  • Remember you are not permitted to camp closer than 150 m from an inhabited house or cabin.
  • Special rules may apply for camping in nature reserves.
  • Be considerate to other traffic (even though there is not much).
  • Greet people you meet and stop for a chat.
