Guided journeys in the mountains and by the fjords, summer and winter
Bø has a spectacular nature, with very various weather conditions, high mountains and steep cliffs, deep fjords and sandy, white beaches, roaring seas and midnightsun. We also have polar nights with northern lights dancing on the sky…. The photo motives are many! Please dress according to the weather conditions and join us on a journey!
The Arctic Light! So much more than the midnight sun and northern lights.
You can enjoy the midnight sun from the quayside at Fjordcamp from late May to mid-July, weather permitting. Photo motives stand in line, both from land and sea!
You may experience the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) at night sky in winter when the weather permits.
But The Arctic Light we have all year round! Clear true colours, always changing...
At Fjordcamp there is little light pollution from other buildings and street lights so that the conditions are right for taking good pictures!
Sightseeing in Bø
We can offer guided tours in Bø visiting museums, points of interests, authentic fishing villages, iron-age graves and beautiful scenery.
In cooperation with Bø taxi and Boreal we arrange journeys for groups from 9 to 49 persons. Smaller groups have to make an appointment with Fjordcamp directly.
Skipnes and Tinden
By boat we can visit the island of Tindsøy in Vesterålen. We can give you a tour in the old fishing village of Skipnes, which once both was a fishing station and a production site for fish processing and fish products. The tour continues on foot in an easy terrain for about an hour to Tinden, another old fishing village and also an old trading post which today is preserved by the The Directorate for Cultural Heritage in Norway. Before returning to Fjordcamp, there might be a stop for a snack or a stop just to enjoy a quiet moment at sea.
The Sámi culture
In cooperation with Inga Sámi Siida we can offer experiences witin the Sámi culture and their food traditions! Visit the reindeer fences in the mountains and join the collecting and labeling of reindeer during the summer season, or take a ride with the snowmobile to feed the reindeer during the winter season. Try to catch the reindeer with a lasso, and taste traditional Sámi food. Visit the lavvo and listen to stories about the Sámi people, their language and culture.
Bøhallen is a sports hall/culture house in Bø. Here you can swim, go to the movies, exercise or you can have Bøhallen as a starting point for tours in the area. In cooperation with Bøhallen we have created an activity package to suit people of all ages!

We also offer authentic coastal fishing as it has been done for generations in an original fishing boat from the 1960s.
