Description

Harstad is situated at the heart of Northern Norway, at the gate to the Vesterålen and Lofoten islands. This is a region with unforgettable adventures in nature, accessible and mighty mountain landscapes, fantastic views and a plentiful archipelago.

This is the place to find a quiet spot for yourself, drink clean water from trickling rivers or fish in mountain lakes or at sea.

Harstad lies at the centre of an exciting region:
Kvæfjord is known for its strawberries and Nupen, elected to the most romantic place in Norway to see the midnight sun.
Bjarkøy, the Viking seat of Tore Hund, can boast a formidable
archipelago, a bird rock and many white-tailed eagles.
The boroughs adjacent to the airport, Tjeldsund and Skånland, are known for their fantastic mountain walks, white sandy beaches and beautiful fjords. Skånland even has its own ‘ice swimming beach’. You will also find old sami settlements
here and a cultural landscape bearing witness of settlements throughout thousands of years.
