This is the four-day vacation you need, with accommodation, meals, and activities on the beautiful ‘Himmelblå Island’ Ylvingen.

Welcome to Himmelblå Brygge on Ylvingen, where the fantastic world of island life unfolds before you! Ylvingen, known as the “Himmelblå Island,” is a beautiful paradise on the southern Helgeland coast, and at Himmelblå Brygge, you can stay comfortably and experience the best the coast has to offer in activities on, by, and under the water.

Join us for fishing for halibut on a fishing boat, freediving for scallops, and kayaking under the midnight sun. Take a longer sail with a large sailboat or a short trip in a dinghy. Explore and forage in the intertidal zone, dive for scallops and flounder, and have the food you catch and gather prepared for dinner.

Himmelblå Brygge offers spacious and comfortable family rooms, exciting and cozy glamping tents, and best of all: The rooms are within baby monitor range of the restaurant. So whether you come with your extended family, a group of friends, or just two people wanting to be together, Himmelblå Brygge will help you put together a program that’s just right for you.

Need an extra-large cup of coffee when the kids want to get up early to find crabs in the intertidal zone? They’ll take care of it. And if you need a secluded islet with cold drinks behind the boat, they know exactly where to find it.

Are you ready for a Himmelblå dream vacation? Welcome to Ylvingen!

The activity package is available every Monday and Thursday throughout July.

Himmelblå Brygge is open for the summer season from June 15th and can accommodate groups upon request in the fall.

Himmelblå Brygge is located on the island of Ylvingen, between Vega and Brønnøysund. You can reach the island by express boat from Brønnøysund Hurtigbåtkai and Rørøy Hurtigbåtkai on Vega, or by ferry from Horn near Brønnøysund and Igerøy Ferjekai on Vega.
