Bjørnefossvatnet or Flatisvatnet is a lake in the northwestern part of the municipality of Rana in Nordland county, Norway. The lake is located inside the Saltfjellet–Svartisen National Park, about 30 kilometres (19 mi) north of the town of Mo i Rana. The glacial lake is also the headwaters of the Glomåga river which flows south into the lake Langvatnet.[1][2]
