As a guest, you will immediately realize why the Hotel Scandic Syv Søstre bears the name of the Seven Sisters mountains. The hotel enjoys a great view of these renowned mountains. A holiday base here is perfect for exploring the many island treasures of the Helgeland coast, including Dønna and its colourful history, the idyllic island of Herøy, and the Vega archipelago, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The town of Sandnessjøen is a great base for hiking the trails of the Helgeland coast and its islands, and for exploring this scenic region on two wheels, by car or in a kayak. Within a short walk from the Scandic hotel, you will find the hiking trail to Åsen. This 6 km hiking trail heads south, rewarding you with a magnificent view of the Seven Sisters mountains, Dønnamannen peak, and the bridge called Helgelandsbrua.

If you want the car parked longer, you must either use long-term parking spaces at the small boat harbor in Karivika, at the other end of the city’s pedestrian street, or right by Sandnessjøen ferry quay towards the sea, in the parking spaces at Helgeland Harbor.
