Drive, cycle or take the mountain route up to the Tourist Cabin (Turisthytta), approx. 3.5 km from the city centre. There is a spacious car park there. The path starts at the end of the car park and is clearly marked. The hike can be done as a round trip by descending on the gravel path and crossing over to the Kaiser Trail again on the marked path at Kretjønna pond. On a windy day you can find shelter in the lean-to known as “Kværmannsbu” (Everyone’s hut) at the top of the mountain. This is a great place for a break and there is sheltered seating for several people and a wonderful view overlooking the sea.
Using public transport, you can get there by taking bus no. 3 from Bodø city centre to the bus stop at Vollen Nursing Home. The service runs several times a day (except Sundays) and takes about 10 minutes. Buses no. 100, 200 and 300 into Bodø correspond with service 3 at City Nord.
