What travellers are saying
- Great view from top of bridge, walk up left hand side pedestrian footpath from car park, check tide times so you go when currents are at their peak.Written 4 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Took a guided tour which was really informative. Focus is on Norweigan aviation and how it has developed. A bit pricy but lots to see here.Written 7 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- Our small group stopped here to enjoy the open air and a walk in nature. We were the only ones there which provided us a very private family time. Some of our group sat and enjoyed the view while others climbed to the top of the big rock and then checked out the sandy shore. The scenery is beautiful and is perfect for any casual or professional artist or photographer to capture an amazing picture. The setting is very relaxing. It is well worth the stop.Written 23 October 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- In my visits to Bodø I always run up to Keiservarden. Excellent view of city and nature around. Can choose to access by gravel or forrest/sherpa Trail. Easy access to further mountaina from here. Highly recommended.Written 6 August 2020
- This well-preserved old trading post is well worth travelling 40 kilometer From Bodø . It has incredibly well-preserved buildings and not least the interior, especially in the main building and in the grocery storeWritten 9 September 2020
- The tourist association and county council have invested loads into making bodømarka an accessible and pleasant place for hikers of all ages and levels of fitness. The landscape views are breathtaking. Lots of paved and graveled trails, benches, even dog poo bags are provided. Bodø is a good place for low threshold hiking.Written 1 December 2019
- Modern beautiful design; lovely stained glass windows. Also known as a "peace cathedral." Recommended for a short visit.Written 16 March 2020
- You must go there to see for yourself. This is a library with a view over the harbour in Bodø, a town in North Norway with over 50 000 inhabitants. I don`t think noone have such a wonderful prospect. It`s pieacfully to sit and read a newspaper og just relex. It`s lots of space. There is also a cafè in the building. And maybe you are lucky to see small exhibitions like paintings made of young pupils, or art made of older students. Sometimes there is readings for kids, sometimes dancing and plays. The building where the library are, is only 5 years old. Last time I visited the library, was at "Kulturnatt 2019", where I watch many ballettdancers showing several dancers from their upcoming christmasshow "Nøtteknekkeren". Nice :)Written 2 December 2019
- A small, but nice museum. The best part is upstairs (1st floor), which tells about the history of the city, for example the bombing and rebuilding during second world war. Great 25 minutes film every half an hour, with English subtitles. The ground floor focuses on the local version og the national costume (bunad), while the basement has an «aquarium» (no water) showing fishes from the region.Written 8 July 2020
- Ride a car or ask a bus driver to let you off at the starting point. Follow the trail and the signs. One safe but semi-steep segment in the forest after about 1/3 of the way, with ropes you can support yourself on. Slightly steep towards the top, but still safe. Popular low-to-medium effort hike.Written 13 October 2019
- We stopped here during our northbound Hurtigruten cruise and, knowing we would be staying in Bodo later in our trip, made sure to plan another stop. It is a very short walk from the mall near the port and the Clarion Hotel. The people working at the information centre are very helpful with maps and other tourist ideas. They have a very good selection of souvenirs at a reasonable price. I am so glad we had a chance to return to this very helpful information centre.Written 23 October 2019
- great great experience with the pool. The staff was also quite cooperative. All in all a great experience, highly recommended!Written 13 June 2018
- It has a Vinmonopolet so there is a chance to buy some good wine at bearable prices. This is one of the few stops where wine can be purchased for a private drink.Written 17 February 2019
- The church dates back many years and has a wood carved pulpit which was extremely interesting. The church is about 5 minutes away from town in a wooded setting. We were fortunate to have a church member showing us around.Written 8 August 2018
- Fresh fish is a major export article along the coast, also in Nordland, The major exporters have their offices in Bodø, and they have created a small information center focusing on the salmon industry, processes, research and exports. The center is manned and questions are answered. It can be a little bit hard to find even though it is located just around a corner down the Sjøgata street, but when you get to the salmon artwork on the street side windows, turn around the closest corner and there it is.Written 13 October 2019
