The lively atmosphere with a right amount of culture and history dangling in the air, architecture that swoops right into our hearts and makes this place secure a special position in our hearts. In the ancient times, the city was named to be one of the European capital of culture due to its perfect balance of everything that it creates for a traveller. From strolling through the city centre to watch the beautiful setting, the rustic architecture crafted in a baroque style, and the tiny shops tucked in the corner of the streets, everything will make you fall in love with the city.

It is usually said that the best places on the map are the ones which cannot be seen on the feed and we couldn’t agree more. Bodo is one of the most underrated places in Norway, therefore the most enchanting one. If you want to knock your feet out by visiting a different place, going far away from the hype, make sure to keep Bodo in your list. The history that you will be able to learn about in the city would be a little more than any other city, including the capital itself. For an ideal day out with your loved ones, you can consider starting your trip from Bodø Domkirke and then satisfying your taste buds at the local cafes and restaurants. 

Best time to visit Bodo 

Although it comes as no surprise that Norway is usually cold throughout the year, so is Bodo. However, if you are looking to visit the city when it adds in the beauty, make sure to book your tickets during the spring season which is from June to August. The temperature during these seasons are usually warm and assures a great trip to its visitors. If you are expecting to witness Northern lights in the city, you can expect it from September to April during the evening.

 

Nordland Music Festival

Although this fits more into ‘things to do’ rather than ‘places to visit’ list, this is one of our personal favourites. The concert takes place at some of the most breathtaking viewpoints in the city and entertains the people for 10 days with its lively music, jazz and opera in the beginning of August. Make sure to check the internet if you are hoping to witness the event while visiting the city.
