There is a ferry from Skutvik further north at 11.00 that will take you to Svolvær. The most frequent ferry in the area is the Bognes-Lødingen ferry but that is even further north and will involve more driving.

Thanks. More than 200 Km from Bodo. I dont see how We can be at Skutvik at 1100, after arriving with the night train from Trondheim to Bod at 0913. It is ruther funny that the ferry from Bodo is not in accordance with the train timetable. Thanks again. Ami.

The ferry from Bodø to Moskenes at 1015 corresponds with the arrival of the night train at 0913, you should be able to catch it.

All the car rental agencies in Bodø (Hertz, Avis, Budget, Sixt and Europcar) are located at the airport, 3km from the train station. If you book in advance you may ask to have your rental car delivered to the train station.

Thanks. This is a good idea. We will try to do it!

Is there any local car rental co. that is very reliable and has a wide service stations up north?

The prices we are being offered here seems very expansive: 14 day for audi3 around 10000nok, toyota avansis more than 11000nok. They all say that toyota Prius (hybrid) not available!

YOU are all very helpful. THANKS AGAIN AND AGAIN (WE WILL BE ABLE TO PAY BACK WHEN WE ARE BACK AND ANYONE INTEND TO VISIT OUR COUNTRY!).

If you haven't booked a car yet - it's often cheaper to book cars at Lofoten than in Bodø (try to find some local car rentals and not the chains). I guess you don't need the car on the ferry anyway.
