skutvik to bodo -what is there to do/ see between these two?

HI,

We will be in Lofoten islands with a car, and will first go from Bodo to Moskenes, then stay in Reine and Henningsvaer. We then are planning on taking the ferry from Svolvear to Skutvik and then drive to Bodo. Besides the tide pool, is there anything else that we should make sure to see/do between Skutvik and Bodo? Any suggestions on 'must do' day or partial day hikes in/ around of Bodo?

We have one extra day and aren't sure whether to spend it around or outside of Svolvear (we will have been to Reine, Henningsvaer already), or whether to spend the extra day between Skutvik and Bodo, or hiking around Bodo. Would love suggestions. We are outdoor types - see beautiful nature, hike, kayak etc. as opposed to museums. Thank you!

If you have any interest in literature and Norwegian culture and history take time to visit the Knut Hamsun museum at Hamaroy near Skutvik and buy one of his books - essential reading if your own background is Minnesota Norwegian.

Wonderful scenery all the way from Skutvik down to Bodo. From Bodo take the coastal road north and visit Kjerringoy, a beautifully preserved village and stunning photo opportunity with Lofoten across the sea in the background. Some fantastic mountains on the way there which you could no doubt venture towards on foot. Not sure where the best starting point is though.

Skutvik at Hamarøy are a lovely area, but don't forget to include a detour out to Steigen and Engleøya.

And if you have time, you should also drive to Drag and take the ferry over to Kjøpsvik, for a visit to the amazing mountain, Stetind...

Norsc - thank you for your suggestions and for the museum suggestion. My son is studying at St Olaf in MN and he will be quite interested to learn more about the history and culture of that part of Norway. Can't wait to get on the plane tomorrow!
