“You have to have been there to understand,” sings the local troubadour, Terje Nilsen, describing Mjelle in a song. In the summer, many excursions end at Mjelle, both weekends and weekdays. You don’t have to be a child to collect shells or build sand castles, or to enjoy a good ball game. Bring firewood and cooking equipment if you want to barbecue.

Easy to reach by car or bus from Bodø. A nice footpath takes to to the beach on the peninsula. Google "Mjelle" and you'll find plenty pics. Nice for a picnic, but take your trash with you home.

This beautiful beach is about an hour's drive from Bodo and well worth a visit. At the end of the road is a small parking area with a couple of picnic benches and a fairly basic toilet block, but the view is lovely. We visited...More

You need a car to get there (or hike a while from the busstop) but you get something in return. Great sandy beaches in a special environment. I was here on a day when it was 26C and swimming was mandatory. The water was ice...More
