BODØ - The mini metropole up north


Vibrant and lively Bodø is the heart of the Salten region, as well as Northern Norway’s second city.

Bodø is the European Capital of Culture 2024, and, is found in a landscape of endless variety just north of the Arctic Circle.

Bodø is an exciting and lively city with short distances between the memorable experiences. You can go shopping, climb in the mountains, go on a RIB safari to visit the world’s strongest tidal current and drink at a sky bar – all on the same day!
