True North

By Linda Tancs

A gateway to Norway’s true north, the coastal town of Bodø just north of the Arctic Circle is squeezed between mountains, hills and the sea. Mount Rønvikfjellet is a great place to view the midnight sun this time of year. This area also boasts world titles: Saltstraumen is home to the world’s strongest tidal current and hosts the world record for saithe (pollock) caught with a fishing pole. Abounding in Arctic wildlife, Bodø also has the densest population of white-tailed sea eagles in the world. You can learn more about Norwegian coastal history at Kjerringøy, the best-preserved trading post from the 1800s.
