Boat trip between Bodø and Sandnessjøen

  • Sandnessjøen, SANDNESSJØEN

  •  /  km From You

Travelling with the express boat between Bodø and Sandnessjøen allows you to visit a number of islands. You will experience unique places, great nature and breathtaking views. Here you will travel like a local and see places you cannot visit by car.

Nordlandsekspressen is a year around express boat that sails between Bodø and Sandnessjøen.  During the summer there is an extra connection that sails between the smaller islands, but still between Bodø and Sandnessjøen.  

You can easily combine this great offer with Nordland Travel Pass which gives you free travel on boat and buses in Nordland for a week for NOK 995, -

Kayaks and bikes are free along with paying passangers.  We reccomend that you book the boat trip in advance. You can book here.  .  

The summer route runs from mid-June to mid-August on Monday to friday. On weekends you can take advantage of the regular boat routes.

If you are on a car holiday you take 2-4 days to do some island hopping. You can then start from Bodø or Sandnessjøen, but also Nesna and Ørnes are well suited (easier with parking here).

Traveling by boat means getting to places you would never be able to visit by car. Small island communities, far offshore such as Myken. Here lives approx. 15 residents, but in the summer it is a popular island to visit. Here you will find the world's northernmost Whiskey distilleries.

If you would like to enjoy this you can contact Kystriksveien Reiseilv for help planning your dream holiday along Kystriksveien. We tailor your tour to your wishes. You will get an itinerary and we will book necessary accommodation. Contact by mail Service fee NOK 890,-
