Description

Island jumping along the coast of Helgeland The coast of Helgeland in North Norway offers spectacular nature with towering mountain peaks, impressive ocean vistas and sheltered bays. There are thousands of islands, large and small, flat and round, long and narrow. By bike, you can travel all along the varied coast, around fjord indentations, across bridges and along the foot of majestic mountains. It won't be the hills that take your breath away on this trip, but the sights and impressions! Every day you will have a spectacular view of famous mountain landmarks: De Syv Søstre, Dønnamannen and Torghatten. We have also planned a visit to the island of Lovund, which is famous for its large colony of Puffins. You also visit the island Vega, the myriad of islands, holms and skerries covering 1037 square kilometres in Vega municipality on the Helgeland coast is a unique, open cultural landscape of sea and land. The Vega archipelago reflects the way fishermen and farmers have, over the past 1500 years, maintained a vibrant community. The landscape along the coast of Helgeland is even and easy to cycle, with relatively little traffic on the roads. Everyday you can choose between short and long day trips – precisely the alternative that suits you best.
