Bodø Station (Norwegian: Bodø stasjon) is a railway station located in downtown Bodø in Nordland county, Norway. The station is the terminus of the Nordland Line that was completed in 1961. The station is served by day- and night trains to Trondheim and commuter trains to Rognan, operated by the Norwegian State Railways using Class 93 units.[1][2][3]

The decision to build the railway to Bodø was made in 1923, but was not completed until the 1960s due to lack of funds and World War II. Freight traffic was permitted starting in December 1961 while the passenger section was opened on 7 June 1962 by King Olav V. In 2010, the station building was upgraded for NOK 25 million, including a 23-room, 71-bed hostel.[4]
