    Ferry Terminal

    by yooperprof Updated Aug 20, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    easy on, easy off

    The Ferry Terminal is just a two or three minute walk from the train station. From here you can take the auto ferry to Lofoten (Moskenes) - which is what I did. A little further on is the terminal for the coastal steamer - the Hurtigruten - which will take you either northward or southward along and through the spectacular coastal fjords.

    From Narvik to Bod?

    by bpacker Updated Jul 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A 6 hour adventure

    If you intend to journey from Narvik to Bodo, take the
    "720 Nord-Norgeekspressen Bod0-Fauske-Narvik " bus
    your journey will take exactly 6 hours, 25 minutes. The bloody elusive bus station at Narvik is at the basement of the central shopping centre. Your ticket will cost around 467Nok but you'll get a hefty discount if you hold a Scanrail pass like me. If I'm not mistaken, I paid only 20-30% of the actual price. Well, things might have changed since then so click on the weblink for more details.

    Personal Note:You're extremely lucky to get a website to tell you all the details. Back in 2002, I had to beg some Nordic stranger via email for the bus schedule!

    The Hurtigruten ferry in Bodo is just behind the railway station.,and leaves at 15-00 north bound and 04-00 south bound , it is in port 2 hours before. There is a small waiting room at Bodo but your ticket if not booked is bought on board at reception. Just wait while the passengers disembark then go up the small gangway.

    Train with snow plough.,at Bodo.
    1 more image

    I travel in the month of May, so daylight was long for seeing the wonderful scenery. I took the 07-38 from Trondheim, arriving Bodo 17-28 [ 10 hours ]. I was using an Interrail Global pass continuous,which i found to be great value. In Belguim, Germany, Denmark and Holland the trains were not full and easy to get on. I would advise a seat reservation in Norway in summer on the long distance trains. The cost is 50 Nor [ £5.50 ]. The Interrail pass is only real value if you are using the train nearly every day on long distances. For Norway train times can be found on NSB website or Bahn.de for all europe. PS i now know why the train had a snow plough on the engine. It came through a blizzard just before Bodo.in May. There is a night train from Trondheim to Bodo at 23-40 arriveing at Bodo 09-13.but always check times.

    the ferry ride from bodo to moskenes is free if you walk on. it's a gorgeous ride across to the fjords if you can manage to avoid the throngs of german seniors going crazy with their various assortment of cameras and camcorders.
    it's super easy to hitchhike around lofoten in the summer as there are heaps of tourists in rental cars everywhere more than willing to pick people up. i don't think i ever waited more than five minutes for a ride anytime i was there.

    Nordstjernen

    One of the old generation of Coastal steamers visiting Bodø on a summer day. "Nordstjernen" is one representant of the old, faithful ships touring the coast for several decades in all kind of weather.
    Today only new modern ships are doing this coastal cruise.

    by Daniel5 Written Aug 26, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The flight from Oslo takes 90 minutes and there are
    around 8 direct flights a day.Bodo Lufthavn,one of the
    most modern airports in Norway,is situated just 2km
    from the centre.Bodo is also communication hub in the
    maritime context; both the northbound & southbound
    Coastal Express (Hurtigrute) vessels visit Bodo daily.
    The coastal express service as well-established and
    the popular Lofoten ferry makes the journey between
    Bodo and Lofoten much easier. As the northernmost terminal in the norwegian rail network,Bodo has arrivals/departures from/to Trondhiem/Oslo every morning and night. There are also daily bus services
    to the North Cape and Northern Sweden. Bodo is also
    the last stop on Kystriksveien (The Coast Road),one
    of the most scenic routes in Norway .

    by davidcross Updated Aug 26, 2002

    Hurtigruten from Bergen Trondheim or Tromso and other places.
    Train from Trondhein.
    Express boat from Svolvaer 0645 most days.
    Togbuss from Svolvaer - [car ferry and two buses - connects with night train to Trondheim at Fauske] at 1545 most days very highly recommended!
    Buses from Narvik.
    There is an airport but I have no details.
    See http://www.177nordland.com/index_ie.html for buses and ferries - it took a bit of finding!http://www.nsb.no/EN/ for trains.

    Hurtigruten - The Coastal Steamer

    by maritagnes Updated Apr 30, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Trollfjord at Bod�� harbour

    Hurtigruten is the name of the route of ships which daily connect all the smaller and larger places along the Norwegian shore., from Bergen in South to Kirkenes in North.
    Nowadays the ships are bigger and more luxurious than ever, and the cruise along the coast of Norway is called "The world's most beautiful voyage"
    But besides being a comfortable and touristy way to travel, hurtigruten still plays an important role as transportation for local people and goods, thus connecting the entire coastal line of Norway.
    Hurtigruten - on its way North - arrives in Bodø at 1 p.m. every day, and departs for Lofoten at 3 in the afternoon.
    Southwards -arrival in Bodø at 1.30 in the night and departure at 4am.

    by Toby_Swiss Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So, you're in Bodø and want to go on. There are 3 possibilities you can do: Go Southern to Trondheim by train, go Northern to Narvik by bus or go by boat along the coast, Northern or Southern, maybe even by the Hurtigruten, the legendary and world-famous post-ship.

    But no matter where you go, you've got a wonderful and attractive trip before you! Passing high snowy peaks, impressive darkblue fjords, small deep gorges and beautiful Norwegian cabins, you just don't feel the time going by!

    Ok, actually the whole coast-side - from Southern Norway up to Northern Norway - looks almost the same: Just beautiful...

    by smithsgen Updated Jan 24, 2008

    The best way to get here is by flight from Oslo. Both Norwegian and SAS fly here several times a day. There are also direct flights from Trondheim (Norwegian), Tromsø (Norwegian and SAS) as well as smaller cities (Wideroe). Ferry/Boat is slow but can be ok from Lofoten. You can take the bus from Narvik northwards or from Skellefteå. There are also trains arriving from Trondheim.

    9.50 p.m.

    If you go by train, it's 45 minutes to Fauske, where you can transfer to an express bus up to Narvik -- or you can continue on southward to Trondheim, which is about 10 hours by rail from Bodø.

    Bodø Airport

    easy access

    Bodø airport is only a short shot from the center of town. As long as you don't have too much luggage, it's an easy walk from the air terminal to the town center - and flat nearly all the way.
