Re: Ferry from Stamsund to Bodo

This is a part of the sailing plan.
Summer and winter is the same
for the southbound route but not for the northbound.
From Stamsund .......... 22:00 22:00
To Bodø ................... 02:00 02:00
I have a hard time finding out if this is every day
or which days they arrive
but you can try http://www.hurtigruten.co.uk/norway/
for phone numbers or mail adresses.They also have info in several languages.
i did not manage to find any other direct routes there.
You can normally bring your car on hurtigruta but i would send them a mail if I were you.
Travel Tips for Bodø
There is one of those vehicles...
There is one of those vehicles which takes tourists on trips which sets out at 1300 every day to fit in with the Hurtigruten. Not only does it allow you to see the main sights of the city in a short time but it gets you into Bodo Cathedral which would oterwise be shut. This is a 1950s building made of concrete with a detached belltower [photo] and marvellous stained glass windows. Being welcomed at the quay. See intro.
I hope I don't offend any of my Scandinavian friends if I say that I think this picture offers the essence of their society - or at least one of the essences of their society. A classic Volvo, parked outside a traditional cemetary, on a grayish summer day - it struck me as a scene out of an Ingmar Bergman movie ("Wild Strawberries," for instance): quiet, dignified, melancholy. Now, obviously there a lot of aspects of Scandinavian character that aren't rooted in cemetaries and overcast skies - but I do think that there is something "archetypically true" about the atmosphere of this scene.
The people of Bodo are known...
The people of Bodo are known to be cheerful, pleasant,
straight to the point, and very hospitable.
They enjoy entertaining guests,and is difficult for them to hide ther pride when they take visitors to the
Saltstraumen Expirience, to Kjerringoy Old Tading
Post, to the Norwegian Aviation Museum or to the many
other sights and attractions found in the Bodo area.
The old fortress of Nyholmen with its lighthouse is a great recreation area. The small peninsula with the fortress is situated right outside the centre of Bodø, but you will need a car or a bicycle to get out there.
the city of Bodoe
The city of Bodoe is full of mainly modern architecture as a lot of the old houses were destroyed in WW II. Nowadays Bodoe is certainly a good place to do some shopping and to take a walk when coming by cruiseship.
