Ports

Bodø is situated north of the Artic Circle but south of the Auroral Oval. Its beautiful fishiing village has a spectacular view of the Northern Lights and, in summer, the Midnight Sun. Close to it, Saltstraumen is where the world’s strongest tidal current creates amazing whirlpools and draws huge ammounts of fish. You’ll be able to explore local churches, herb gardens and don’t miss out on the Aviation Museum.

Harstad is situated on Hinnoya, Norway’s largest Island, as well as numerous smaller islands. Harstad is known for high-quality restaurants and cultural events throughout the year which, coupled with old architecture make up the uniqie atmosphere of the town. Take a nature hike in the surrounding area, go on a sea rafting adventure or visit the Trondenes historical centre to learn all about the Vikings.
