Bodø is a vibrant city on the edge of nature, with dazzling Midnight Sun and magical Northern Lights, music festivals and concerts throughout the year. An urban city centre with restaurants and shops, central berths and memorable excursions. We recommend Saltstraumen -the world’s strongest maelstrom, Kjerringøy Island - a historic trading post, the National Norwegian Aviation Museum, Sea Egle Safari by RIB, Fishing trips, Arctic Rail, Stone Age heritage and hikes. 

Located in the Northern Lights belt just north of the Arctic Circle, Bodø offers excellent chances of seeing the Northern Lights. Its mild coastal climate, the Aurora Borealis and fantastic Arctic twilight makes for an excellent winter destination. Enjoy activities like: winter RIB safari, snowshoeing, coastal walks, drinking hot cocoa in the urban city centre or enjoying a concert in the town Cathedral.

With a one-stop connection to the major airport hubs of Europe, Bodø is the perfect turnaround port.
