That is a wide area, so difficult to be specific :)

Bodø is the first city (and major airport) north of the arctic circle. The Lofoten islands as well as the fjord/island area north of Bodø and the glacier south of Bodø are popular.

A bit inland from Bodø:

I drove Arctic Norway for most of this past summer. A great choice if you can make it up there. Lofoten, Senja, and the Lyngen Alps are all amazing! A car is required to get to the best places. So fly to Bodo or Tromso, rent a car, and follow one of these routes:

Good pix in the photo galleries on this site too.

Wow great photos. A car is the best to travel within the area (wide and sparsely populated so public transport is limited), best to fly in to Bodø or Tromsø as you need several days to drive from Bergen/Oslo.
