Description

At the intersection between Salten, Ofoten and Lofoten, you will discover a miniature version of Nordland – as we know it from Knut Hamsun’s world famous novels: fertile, breathtaking and mountainous.

Steigen, Hamarøy, Tysfjord and Sørfold offer a ”tangle of islands, islets and skerries”. Deep fjords, steep mountains, gentle inland seas and seething ocean currents. Beautiful rock carvings confirm human settlement has survived here thanks to the generous nature since the Stone Age. Traces have been found along the coastline from Viking chieftains and traders from Hamsun’s time.


Today, the sea and the fertility of the soil still provide a basis for living here. You will see well run farms, mature forests, fishing and aquaculture. Also located here is Arran, a centre for Lule Sami culture, spanning from traditional handicrafts to an electronic classroom.


The Realm of Hamsun offers today’s visitors a wide range of accommodation options, including excellent hotels, idyllic camping sites and distinctive guest houses.
