Bodø is the largest city in the region of Nordland in Norway . It is located approximately 1200 km to the north from the capital city Oslo . Bodø has a population of approximately 33 500.

About Bodø

Bodø was founded in 1816. At that time, it was the trade centre for the whole region. The area is distinctive due to the development of the fishing industry as the locality was known for abundant presence of herring. During the Second World War, the city of Bodø was heavily damaged by bomb attacks. Its central part was completely wiped out. This is why its today´s downtown area looks so modern. The original houses were replaced with new buildings. Bodø is attractive for tourists since the landscape in the surrounding area is just gorgeous.

Biggest attractions in the city

In the central part, you can come across several interesting places, for example, the Norwegian Aviation Museum. If you plan to explore the museum carefully, it will take you a half day. You can visit e.g. the control tower, you can look at civil and military aircrafts, both modern and historical. Another interesting place is the Nordland Museum. It is focused on the history of the city of Bodø. You can admire, for example, several silver findings from the Viking period. The museum expositions are focused on the history of local fishing industry. The museum includes a small open-air museum, called the Bodøsjøen Friluftsmuseum. It is situated some 3 km from Bodø. There are original houses, farm buildings, as well as German bunkers from the period of the Second World War. The islands in the surrounding area are the habitat of sea eagle, which is believed to be the most populated in the world.

Activities in the surrounding area

Bodø is a good starting point for trips in the surrounding area, especially on the boat. The harbor is right in the city - in its northern part, next to the railway station. Visitors usually choose a three-hour-long trip which will take them to more distant islands, including a lunch at the Landego Lighthouse. The trips are available from July to mid August. It is recommended to contact local tourist information office and book the trip ahead of time. Alternatively, you can take a longer trip to more distant destinations in the northern part of the country. The harbour in Bodø is used by ferry boats, too.
