Seløy Kystferie invites you to explore the magnificent Helgeland coast by joining a RIB sea-rafting excursion or by taking a trip on a fishing boat. Their knowledgeable guides will enrich your experience with insight into the coastal culture and the harsh life of the fishermen and their families who have lived here for countless generations.
RIB sea-rafting safaris
Seløy Kystferie has its base at Seløy in Herøy municipality. They’ll take you on an exciting RIB safari where you get to experience firsthand the powerful forces of the open sea. You will visit picturesque fishing villages and hear your guide share stories about life on the islands. The excursion to the villages of Sandsundvær and Skibbåtsvær is especially popular. When we go ashore at Sandsundvær, you’ll hear the tragic story of how that little fishing village was shattered by a stormy spring tide that cost the lives of 34 people.
On the visit to Gåsvær, you will see the cormorant colony and the nests of sea eagles, and hear about porpoises and whales. Most likely you will see sea eagles on this excursion.
For the boat trips, Seløy Kystferie uses MS “Storøy”, a 50-foot cutter built in 1928. The boat itself is testimony to Helgeland’s coastal heritage. If you are an eager angler, this deep-sea fishing trip is just the adventure for you. The whole family, or you and your friends, can have a friendly fishing competition. But if you prefer, you can just relax, enjoying life on board and the magnificent scenery that surrounds you.
Those who have counted claim the Helgeland coast has 24,430 islands, islets and skerries. In short, your opportunity for adventure is limitless! Seløy Kystferie offers rowboat and kayak rental for intrepid travellers who wish to explore the waters on their own.
The rather flat island of Herøy is especially suitable for a cycling holiday. For the best view, cycle onto one of the many bridges that connect Herøy with its neighbouring islands.
Dining and accommodation
Less than a kilometre away from Seløy Kystferie is Augustbryggo. It is perfect to combine one of the excursions with a dining experience here. Augustbryggo also offers comfortable accommodation.
Another option is to spend the night in a lavvo, the traditional tent of the indigenous Sámi people of the arctic. It accommodates up to 12 people. We’ll have the lavvo set up and waiting on one of the beautiful islands of Herøy. (NB. This is not available during the joint Norwegian summer holiday in July.)
