Helgeland Travel Service (HTS) will gladly take you on a tour to Helgeland’s many attractions. Whether we explore the coast or inland tracts, on a clear summer day or a day with mist and rain, all of our excursions will show you the magnificent landscape of Helgeland.

Join us as we visit Torghatten, the famous mountain with a hole that passes all the way through, the Seven Sisters mountain range, the island of Lovund, Træna and its surrounding islands, and other great sights on the coast and inland.

We’ll visit varied attractions, such as three impressive medieval churches, one of which contains Norway’s largest and best-preserved burial chamber. Let us tell you fascinating stories about the powerful Viking chieftains of Northern Norway. We will take you up to the second-largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland – and how about a tour (with tasting) of the world’s first Arctic whiskey distillery. Come visit the master chocolatier who runs perhaps the world’s smallest chocolate factory, and another colourful shop that you really should experience. Join us as we visit the Arctic Circle, and marvel at the varied magical landscape all over Helgeland.

Check route with Entur

Helgeland Transportservice has two offices. One in Sandnessjøen and the other in Mo i Rana. Meeting place for trips is often arranged other places than at the offices. Car rental is also something you can arrange for delivery and pick-up at other addresses, but you can also show up at the offices to pick up a rental car.


The summer weather on Helgeland can vary a lot, with temperatures typically ranging from 15 to 30˚C – and summer showers are not unknown. We recommend that you bring swimwear as well as an all-weather jacket, and both hiking boots and sandals. In other words, be ready for every kind of weather.


In winter, temperatures vary from –15 to 5˚C. If you intend to enjoy outdoor adventures, we recommend packing woollen underwear and windproof outerwear. By layering the garments you wear, you can quickly adjust to any change in the weather. We also recommend thick gloves or mittens, a good scarf and a warm hat, especially if you expect to be spending a lot of time outside, for instance if you are trying to catch the Northern Lights.

Thank you for respecting the local communities, and for helping us preserve the natural beauty of Helgeland!
