The town of Bodø is located just North of the Arctic Circle and is the second largest town in the North of Norway with a population of over 40,000 inhabitants. Its airport and train station are both a walking distance from the city centre making it easily accessible to visitor, and its picturesque harbor with mountains in the backdrop guarantees dreamy walks along the waterfront.
While you're here make sure you check out the street art that brings colour to Bodø's walls, then stop at a trendy bar or restaurant for a meal. Renting a bike is a great way to explore the area whether you're looking at staying in town or checking out the stunning nearby beaches. If you're looking for an active holiday, the nature around town offers great hiking and mountain biking opportunities.
When it comes to winter, activities include snowshoeing, dog sledding and chasing the Northern Lights, ensuring there's something to do no matter the season. Bodø is the Sea Eagle capital of the world and one of the best locations to view the famous white tailed creature, and is a boat ride away from Lofoten and all the water activities it offers.
