Lovund Island

Lovund is ideal for experienced kayakers. Around the island the waters are partly sheltered, although there are plenty of opportunities for adventurers yearning for tougher challenges. When you’re not kayaking, we recommend a hike up Lovundfjellet, which rewards you with a magnificent panorama of the entire Helgeland coast.
