The northern town of the scenic route
Bodø is the northernmost town along the Coastal Road and for many the gateway to Lofoten. This is where the Norwegian Aviation Museum as well as Saltstraumen, one of the world's strongest tidal currents, are located.
In Bodø you will find a rich cultural life, along with a large selection of eateries and shops. Bodø is the county capital of Nordland, and the home of around 50,000 people. Like Steinkjer at the southern end of Kystriksveien, the centre of Bodø was rebuilt following the Second World War. In recent years, Bodø has experienced a major expansion of the city center, including a new cultural center and a large hotel.
Bodø town is surrounded by fantastic nature. To the west lies Lofotveggen, the Lofoten mountains, and to the east lies Norway's national mountain Stetind. There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities; in and around Bodø town there are many hiking routes, including Rønvikfjellet and Keiservarden.
