Helgeland and Lofoten

The Torghatten Mountain, the bird island of Lovunden and the Saltfjellet-Svartisen National Park are among the attractions on this trip.

The Nordland fairy tale book lies before you: Brønnøysund and the Torghatten Mountain with its famous hole, the boat trip from Stokkvågen to the bird island Lovunden and bewitching Træna, the Seven Sisters mountains, the fjords beneath the Svartisen Glacier, the bridge across the Saltstraumen maelstrom, the incredible scenery between Fauske and Narvik. All culminating in majestic Lofoten with charming fishing villages and alpine peaks.

On your way south you will be fascinated by the Saltdalen Valley, Saltfjellet Mountain and the Dunderlandsdalen Valley. Followed by the Vefsn Valley with the magnificent Laksfoss Waterfall.

The Trondheimfjord with its historical sites and the old cathedral town of Trondheim form a grand finale.
