City profile

Bodo, located just north of the Arctic Circle, is the largest city in Nordland County, and the second largest in North Norway.

The municipality of Bodo has lots of wilderness to offer hikers. 10 kilometers north of Bodo lies the popular recreation area Geitvagen. The area is inhabited by a large number of White-tailed Eagles. There are 17 nature reserves in the municipality.

Kjerringoy is a well preserved old trading village on the coast 40 km (25 mi) north of Bodo. With its scenic setting and authentic buildings, several movies have been shot at this little port. Bodo is host to the cultural festivals Nordland Musikfestuke and Parkenfestivalen every summer, as well as the free Bodo Hardcore Festival in early winter.

The northern lights can be seen on dark, clear evenings from September to April. Since the sun doesn't set in summer, you can admire the midnight sun from Mount Ronvikfjellet, or watch it hang on the horizon.
