PICTURES from BODØ

Bodø is the second largest town in Northern Norway, with excellent communications and fully modern facilities. The town is surrounded by beautiful nature, including the Børvasstindene mountains to the south, and Landegode island and the Lofoten Islands to the north.

 Bodø  

Bodø is known as the town of the sea eagle, and nowhere in the world is there a larger stock of this majestic bird. Visit Saltstraumen when the tide is at its highest and marvel at the forces of nature. The strongest maelstrom in the world. Saltstraumen is also famous for its abundance of fish, including cod, saithe, wolffish and halibut.

The island of Kjerringøy is about 40 km north of Bodø where narrow fjords encircle a mountainous peninsula. Author Knut Hamsun visited Kjerringøy in 1879 and found inspiration and encouragement for his writing.
