It does not really matter much where you are as long as you are beyond the arctic circle. Tromsø is the Nl-destination, Bodø is hardly a tourist destination at all. Weather is the most important factor, in Tromsø you have the possibility to take guided tours or drive inland in search of clearer skies if it is cloudy on the coast. Less so in Bodø.

Tromso wins hands down due to the great selections of other things to do - and also better restaurants, bars and shopping.

The best destination for the Northern lights, is where the weather are best!
