Flights to Bodø
Bodø can make you feel at the edge of the world
Far away from the bigger cities buzzing with tourists, Bodø is the northernmost point of one of the world’s most scenic roads, the Kystriksveien Coastal Route. And the views most definitely won’t stop there as the coastal town is only the doorway to Norway’s authentic north.
Thanks to its geographical location in the Arctic, in Bodø you’ll have great chances of catching the Northern Lights. Imagine the colourful reflections the aurora creates above the harbour, mountains laying in the background. The Børvasstindan mountain range also offers hiking trails and the nearby Bodømarka forest has skiing trails for the winter sports enthusiasts. If you’re more drawn to the water, make sure to visit Saltstraumen where the world’s largest maelstrom shows off its power in terrific whirlpools.
Although breath-taking nature is undeniably the keyword of a trip to Bodø, there’s also plenty to do in the city. In August, music festivals like “Parkenfestivalen” and “Nordland Musikkfestuke” attract thousands of people. Travelling street art festivals have already painted the streets of Bodø in eye-catching murals to admire. After strolling around you can grab a drink on a café terrace. Typically to Bodø, your order is most likely served with a display of majestic eagles gliding across the sky as the town has the densest population of white-tailed sea eagles in the world.
Not only is Norway's longest railway's last station in Bodø, but it’s also a hub for sea travels to popular islands. Regular ferry connections connect Bodø for example with the ethereally beautiful Lofoten Islands, that in their unspoiled nature, can be the cherry on top of your visit to Bodø.
