What to do in Bodø

Bodø offers unique countryside or urban pleasures, whether you are here for two days or two weeks.

Coastal adventures

Bodø is surrounded by a beautiful coastline that offers ample opportunities for exploration. You can go kayaking under the midnight sun, take a tour on a fast passenger boat through the impressive archipelago, walk along the shore with a rucksack or fishing rod, feel your heart beat in step with the engine on an old fishing smack, or squeal with delight as the rubber dinghy bounces from wave to wave.

Torghatten Nord and Stella Polaris both offer trips along the coast.

Cultural adventures

Fancy a violin concert on the city's rooftop, 366 metres above sea level? Sculpture on the breakwater? A football match with Bodø/Glimt at Aspmyra Stadium? Bodø is a melting pot where art and culture are mixed together in a dynamite cocktail.

Nature adventures

With Bodø as your base you can pick and choose from a fantastic assortment of adventures. Here you can fish in the world’s strongest tidal current, be enthralled by the northern lights as they flicker across the sky on a crisp autumn evening, or enjoy the soft whistling sound of cross-country skis on the track in Bodømarka. 

City adventures

Enjoy your beer or a glass of Chablis outdoors on the quayside, as sea eagles sail majestically across the horizon. Stamp your feet to a hard-hitting rock concert in the city park. Go shopping in modern malls like City Nord and Glasshuset or small specialist shops. All of this with a backdrop of magnificent scenery only a few minutes away.
