Very nice and short hike a few minute from Bodø center. It does not demand a great effort and is ideal for a first warm-up.

Totally stunning views from the top of the mountain. The point of 366 meters above sea level is called Keiservarden and is a rather easy and nice hike close to Bodo. Travel to Turisthytten and walk from there. THe path is 2,3 km of which the fist km is a really easy path, wide and smooth. The last 1,3 km is still an easy walk but know it goes up hill with uneven stone stairs mixed with mountain paths and stony parts. Lots of people run up to the top and most people wear running shoes but I recommend a light walking shoe for the hike and some warm clothes for the top once you reach it. You'll want to stay and it can be quite windy up here. The view will show you Saltstraumen, Kjerringoy, Bodo city and if you go in the summer on a sunny day - an amazing midnight sun. Highly recommended!

Keiservarden is one of the closest hikes you can take close to Bodo. It is a mere 1 hour walk from the base carpark start (4km one way). Initial climb is easy enough but then gets tougher as you go higher up. There was snow when I was there so it made the climb a bit tricky and slippery but nothing you couldnt do.
Once at the top, you have 360 degree views of the city and surrounding areas. Views are excellent and you can easily spend hours just admiring the mountains and scenary.
There appeared to be a couple of ways to the top and I took the main one.
Highly recommended to anyone.

As closest mountain to Bodo city center, it easy to reach even without a car. Beautiful view from the top, during the trip there are some clean and nice small lakes. If You are lucky, You might even see sea eagles!
