Kvennes Recreational area

Kvennes is an easily accessible recreational area near Storslett national park village. The area is situated above the outlet of the Reisa river into the Reisafjord.

Hiking description

Part of the area is a nature reserve, where the salt flats are used by wetland birds.

Amenities here include signs, gravel paths, rustic shelters and fireplaces with tables and benches.

There is a well-developed trail network offering shorter walks in the area, including in the forest, on the beach and near the mouth of the river. Part of the area is adapted for wheel-chair users and those pushing prams.

The long beaches and shallow water make this a popular bathing spot for the locals during the summer. You can also pick wild berries and mushrooms here in the autumn.

Worth knowing: The children’s nature park is a fun place for climbing.
