Norway - Nordland (Chapter)
This is the Nordland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
Heading northwards, lush fields give way to lakes and forests, vistas open up, summits sharpen and the treeline descends ever lower on the mountainsides. Above the imaginary curve of the Arctic Circle, travellers get their first taste of the midnight sun in summer, while in winter, the northern lights slash the night sky.
- ferry hop and hug the splendid Kystriksveien coastal route

- restaurants & accommodation
- be a wide-eyed kid again at the Norwegian Aviation Museum in Bodø
