This tour visits two of Bodø's most important attractions -- the Norwegian Aviation Museum and the Saltstraumen Maelstrom Visitor Centre.
The National Norwegian Aviation Museum tells the story of Norwegian aviation history and covers an area of 100,000 square feet. Its collection of more than 40 historically-significant aircraft is housed in a building shaped like a giant propeller. It is home to civilian and military aircraft and helicopters, including famous and infamous military aircraft such as the Supermarine Spitfire, Canadair CF-104 Starfighter, Junkers Ju 88 and Lockheed U-2 spy plane, as well as workhorses such as the Junkers Ju 52/3m, de Havilland DHC-6 Twin Otter and the Fokker F28 Fellowship.
Visit the control tower, which provides a wonderful view over the town and the airfield. From here you can follow present-day aircraft and air traffic at close range. The National Norwegian Aviation Museum is one of the largest aviation museums in Northern Europe and attracts more than 40,000 visitors annually.
Next, head for the Saltstraumen Visitor Center, where you'll see a film all about the might of the world's strongest tidal current -- it's an impressive sight and, afterwards, you'll walk down to the water's edge to see the tidal current itself.
Head back to the pier by coach.
Dress warmly in layers.
