Meløy Adventure offers holiday adventures on the scenic coast of northern Helgeland. Their activities menu includes guided treks on the Svartisen glacier, kayaking excursions, sea-rafting trips, sea eagle safaris, and jetboarding.

Guided glacier treks

Svartisen is the second-largest glacier on the Norwegian mainland. Join a guided trip to Engabreen, one of its more accessible glacier arms. Essential equipment such as crampons and ice axes is provided, and everyone is attached by a safety harness to a rope as an experienced guide leads them across the glacier. Seeing the naturally-sculpted ice and deep crevasses up close is quite exotic. During the summer, you experience the Svartisen glacier trek under the midnight sun.

Kayaking

The magnificent Helgeland coast is a paradise for kayaking. Meløy Adventure offers guided kayaking trips on the Glomfjord, to Svartisen and around Rødøyløva. Instruction on safety and paddling techniques is included. Whether you are a beginner or experienced, these are great adventures. Visit Meløy Adventure’s Facebook page to find out more about the kayaking trips and courses offered.

Sea-rafting trips and sea-eagle safaris

With a sturdy high-speed RIB sea raft, and an experienced hand in the driver’s seat, you can travel quickly and far along the Helgeland coast. Sign up for a day excursion to such destination as Karsholmen lighthouse, far out in the open sea, or to the island of Rødøya with a hike to the top of Rødøyløva. On most trips, you can see sea eagles soaring the sky above.

These excursions usually start in Ørnes harbour, but we can also arrange to pick you up on the way to our destination.

Electric bikes

With an electric bike, travelling on forest roads and paths, and even venturing into the mountains, is almost effortless. You can rent a bike and head off on your own, or request an excursion with a local guide who is familiar with the terrain.

Jetboards

Moreover, the jetboard requires only three or four inches of water and is almost silent. Choose the speed you prefer. You can rent a jetboard from Meløy Adventure.

Skiing in the “Meløy Alps”

The majestic mountains around the Glomfjord, which rise to over a thousand metres, are a dream for avid skiers. Choose the peaks and slopes you want to challenge according to your skill and courage. In fact, this winter, why not bring some of your friends for some adrenaline-filled fun in the Meløy Alps
