Bodo
Situated above the Arctic Circle and beneath the Auroral Oval, the beautiful fishing village of Bodo enjoys spectacular views of the Northern Lights and, in the summer, the Midnight Sun. Nearby Saltstraumen is the site of the world’s strongest tidal current, which creates epic whirlpools and draws an abundance of fish. Explore local churches and herb gardens, and don’t miss the excellent Aviation Museum.

Here you can feel the past, with "jektefart" and fish trading, Herring and the daily life in northern Norway coastal communities in the 19 century. Kjerringoy Trading Post is a unique example of coastal heritage set in magnificent scenery. It consists of 15 old buildings retaining many of their original contents. It is one of the country's most important collections of buildings from the nineteenth century. The beautiful slide-show "Anna Elisabeth of Kjerringoy" provides an excellent introduction to a visit. It lasts about 20 minutes. Guided tours are then available around the various yards and buildings. You can shop in the store ("Kramboden") or enjoy refreshments in Nyfjosen Cafe or in the garden. Occasionally various crafts are demonstrated in the buildings. Cultural events are also held here. (See the programme for the season). For a guided tour of the main building a special ticket must be bought. During the tour you will hear more about the competent merchants of Kjerringoy: Sverdrup, Ellingsen and Zahl. You will also gain an insight into the daily lives of the fishermen and smallholders on the coast. The golden age of the trading post was at the end of the nineteenth century. At that time Zahl enjoyed profitable business in the fish trade, coastal shipping, exports and imports. In time Kjerringoy grew to become the wealthiest trading centre in North Norway. less
