Thousands of unexplored islands, mountains with a wow-factor, world heritage, and a sun that never sets in summer. This, and more, await you in Helgeland.
In the southern part of Nordland lies the picturesque Helgeland. Here, you can explore tall mountains like the Seven Sisters or check out Torghatten, a rock formation with a hole through the middle! You can also relax at a beach or go island hopping with or without a bike. Or maybe by kayak? This coast is said to be one of the best places to paddle along the Norwegian coast!
The National Scenic Route Helgelandskysten is one of the most beautiful drives in the world, while the Vega Islands are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can also go on guided glacier walks on Svartisen, Norway’s second-largest glacier, or visit Lovund to see puffins.
You’ll find national parks in this area too, which are excellent for skiing and hiking. The Rabothytta cabin, a prime example of modern architecture in the mountains, is a popular destination at Mount Okstindan, 1,200 metres above sea level.
