The Nordland Railroad runs from the historic Viking capital of Norway, Trondheim, to the beautiful city of Bodø in northern Norway. The railroad is 729km in length, making it Norway's largest mainline railroad. It is also one of only a few railroad lines in the world which cross the Arctic Circle. The railroad, which is also called 'the train of the midnight sun', takes passengers through the beautifully varied scenery of northern Norway and includes views of lakes, rivers and fjords, as well as the spectacular Svartisen Glacier.
The Nordland Railroad crosses the Arctic Circle (66 degrees north) just before reaching Lonsdal, the highest station on the line at 512km above sea level. This part of Norway is famous as an ideal place to view the Northern Lights. During the summer, in fine weather, the sun remains visible 24 hours a day.
After reaching Fauske, the most northerly point on the line, the railroad turns due west to Bodø, regarded by many as the city with the world's most beautiful coastline.
