The E6 motorway runs the length of Helgeland and is the most direct route to the interior. An alternative to the E6 is the Coastal Route ("Kystriksveien") (fv. 17, formerly known as rv. 17), which stretches from Steinkjer to Bodø. You can also reach the Helgeland Coast via Tosenvegen (fv. 76), via Mosjøen (fv. 78) or via Mo i Rana (E12). There are three main roads leading to Helgeland from Sweden: Sagavegen (fv. 804/fv. 296), Krutfjellvegen (rv. 73) and Blåvegen (E12).
