Bodø lies just north of the Arctic Circle and is located among breathtaking mountains and fjords. The Midnight Sun in the summer and the spectacular Aurora Borealis, or Northern lights, continually dazzle local residents and international students alike. Since Bodø is so far north, it can be cold, but not unbearably so. The climate is surprisingly mild thanks to the Gulf Stream continuously bringing warm, moist air from the Caribbean. In summer, temperatures can be quite warm, and in winter, temperatures typically hang just above or below the freezing point. Residents of Bodø enjoy four distinct seasons and a full scope of outdoor recreation activities.
With its 50,000 inhabitants, Bodø is the largest city in Nordland County. It is also the county capital and an important communication center. The airport, railway station and harbor are located here. Bodø is an important trading and business center with armed forces, the municipal and county administration, a hospital and many schools located here. The city including the university is large enough to offer all modern facilities and services, including great opportunities for sports, recreation and cultural activities.
