Harbor of Bodø

Bodø is the largest town of the Nordland area of Norway.

Get in

By train

Bodø is the end of the line of the regional train from Trondheim. Trains leave and arrive several times a day.

By plane

Bodø airport serves many domestic flights. The airport is within walking distance of the city centre.

Get around

The 'Sentrumsrunden' bus brings you everywhere you want within the city.


  • Norsk Luftfartsmuseum (Norwegian Aviation Museum)
  • Kjerringøy handelssted (Kjerringøy trading post)



  • Bodøsjøen Camping. Nice camping. Too bad it's near the airport, so the Boeings and even F16s will fly right over your head.
  • Geitvågen Camping. Camping place around 10 km out of town. Quite big, but the bus routes to the city are very sparse.

Get out

Most travellers only pass Bodø on their way to the Lofoten islands. You can go there by boat(ferries or the coastal express), or by plane to one of the airports, one located close to Svolvær, and one located in Leknes. The plane trip to these places take about 25 minutes, while ferries take several hours.

You can go to Narvik by bus, and you can travel to most parts of Nordland by boat.

There is also a bus connection to Skellefteå from Bodø, which stops several places both in Norway and Sweden.

Bodø is the last station on the Nordlandsbanen rail line, with which one can travel directly to Trondheim and a big variety of locations in the Helgeland region.
