Tourist Information in Bodø

Keiservarden is a real classic for the people of Bodø. This mountain plateau is Bodø’s most visited year-round hiking destination and is renowned for the wonderful views of the city and the sea.

What to expect?

Keiservarden is the number one hiking destination for many in Bodø. Keiservarden is 366 m above sea level, and climbing to the summit is not a very demanding hike.

  • 360° panoramic view: When the weather is clear, you can enjoy a panoramic view. Once you have reached the highest point of Keiservarden, you are rewarded with a scenic view of the city of Bodø. You might be able to see the silhouette of the Lofoten, the islands of Værøy and Røst (the two outermost islands in Lofoten). To the east, you will see the many peaks of the spectacular Børvasstind Mountain Range and the mountains near the Swedish border.

  • Sherpa stone stairs: Several alternative routes lead to the top. In 2016 sherpas from Nepal built stone stairs along our route. This also makes the hike both easier and more fun. Keiservarden and the path are seldom deserted, so be prepared to meet the locals from Bodø on your way.

  • The Emperor's Cairn: Keiservarden is named after German Emperor Wilhelm II, who visited the hilltop in 1891 on one of his visits to Norway. On the top, there is both a plaque in honor of Wilhelm II's climb and a board telling the story.
