Bardufoss is a small town (pop.: ca. 2200) in Målselvmarker municipality in Troms county, North Norway.

Location

Bardufoss is located in M√•lselvdalen valley, to the north of Narvikmarker and south of Troms√łmarker.

Military

Bardufoss has a civilian and military airport, Bardufoss Air Stationmarker, suitable for landing bomber aircraft, fighter jets such as F-16s, and other heavy planes. Bardufoss is also the home of the Norwegian Army's 6th division.

Bardufoss has a street named General Fleischers Veg in honour of Carl Gustav Fleischer.

Climate

Although not far from the coast, Bardufoss and M√•lselvdalen is known for a somewhat more continental climate, and hence, colder winters (but with less humidity and not so much wind) compared to the coastal areas. There is a reliable snow cover in winter, while summer days often are noticeably warmer than in Troms√ł.

Nature

Bardufoss is covered in flora. The natural forest is mostly made up of Downy birch, Scots pine, aspen and Grey alder. However, Norway spruce has been planted in plantations since the middle part of the 20th century for economic reasons (timber).
