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.

Haugesund is a town and municipality in Rogaland county, Norway with a history of herring fishing. The town is surrounded by several parks and recreational areas, perfect for getting a taste of Norway's nature. Visit the Nordvegen History Centre and Viking Settlement open-air museum and learn about the fascinating history of Vikings.
