Norwegian Flag  BodøBodo

The town of Bodø is the gateway to Norway’s true north and is located at the northernmost tip of the Kystriksveien Coastal Route in the Arctic Circle. The towns’ railway station marks the end of the line for trains and is the stop-off point for the Lofoten Islands archipelago. Bodø is the largest urban city in Nordland country and the second largest in North Norway. Blessed with an "oceanic climate" so it enjoys cool summers and cool, yet not cold winters. Bodø experiences some of the strongest tidal currents in the world.

Ålesund is spread over 7 different islands which are interconnected by undersea tunnels and offers visitors a wealth of things to see and do.
