Herøy is a paradise for cyclists, and the fishing is excellent. You can take a sea-rafting adventure, enjoy kayaking or hiking. We suggest a visit to Herøy Church, also known as the Cathedral of Helgeland.
Continue your journey across Åkviksund Bridge to Dønna, which has a proud history, magnificent scenery and varied wildlife. Dønnes Church, dating from the 11th century, has Norway’s best-preserved mausoleum.
The nearby cultural trail takes you up Dønnesfjellet (127 m). If you’re eager for a bigger challenge, hike up to the summit of Dønnamannen (858 m). The island of Dønna offers great cycling, kayaking and boating. For the best swimming, head to Løkta, a smaller island northeast of Dønna.
