Location: Bodø, Norway
Bodø lies just above the Arctic Circle, but the climate is surprisingly mild, thanks to the Gulf Stream bringing warm air from the Gulf of Mexico. It is set in the heart of some of Norway's most stunning nature with mountains, sea and glaciers, and the aurora borealis lighting up the night sky. With a population of about 45,000, Bodø is small enough for students to get to know the city, yet big enough to offer all the entertainment and facilities expected of a modern college town.
