Fly to Bodø
Bodø, the northernmost point of the beautiful Kystriksveien Coastal Route and is the gateway to Norway’s true north. It’s also the northern terminus of Norway’s railway system and a great point to explore the Lofoten Islands.
Bodø is home to the worlds strongest tidal current – The Saltstraumen. The whirlpools are known for their abundance of fish, including cod, saithe, wolf fish and halibut. Fishing can easily be done from the shore, or for the more daring boats can be hired for individual use.
If adventure on the shore is more your thing then head down to one of the many golf courses. During the Summer months, many of the courses are open 24/7 to make the most of the midnight sun! From the Bodø golf park you can enjoy views over the water and out onto the Lofoten Islands.
Just outside of Bodø in Svartisen there is the opportunity to walk on a glacier. Take a guided walk, with all the professional equipment and climb on top of Norway’s second largest glacier.
Bodø has a lively urban art scene. There is a diverse community of local artists with skills such as glassblowing, painting and jewelry making. Many of these products can be bought at local markets around the town. The most eye-catching of the art scene is the street art on the side of many of the buildings. The ‘Art Walk’ takes you round the town centre exhibiting the best of the murals.
Bodø is known for excellent hiking opportunities due to the diverse landscape and the easy access to the mountainsides. It offers a broad selection of easier hiking tours for beginners as well as more challenging hiking routes, with a number of guided walks available.
