Landegode is an island in Bodø Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. The 30.3-square-kilometre (11.7 sq mi) island is located about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northwest of the town of Bodø and about 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) east of the Helligvær islands. The highest point on the mountainous island is the 802-metre (2,631 ft) tall Rypdalstinden.[1]

Most of the 48 islanders (in 2017)[1] live in the southern village of Fenes. Landegode Church is also located in Fenes. Just off of the north end of the island, there are two lighthouses: Landegode Lighthouse and Bjørnøy Lighthouse.
