With Offersøy Camping as your holiday base, you can easily explore the islands of your choice along the Helgeland coast. You can island hop by kayak, or by bringing your bicycle on the express boat or ferry so you can explore various islands on two wheels. Either way, it’s a delightful way to immerse yourself in the region’s rich cultural heritage and feel close to the magnificent landscape and natural elements.

Cultural history

Offersøy Camping is just a short drive or bike ride away from a museum and the cultural path at Tjøtta. Also nearby is Tjøtta’s International War Cemetery. A must-visit is the Petter Dass Museum, housed in a striking building designed by Norway’s renowned architects, Snøhetta. The museum celebrates Petter Dass, a 17th-century poet-priest. The museum is situated near a medieval church at Alstahaug.

A ferry ride from Offersøy Camping will take you to the Vega Archipelago UNESCO World Heritage Site. The World Heritage Centre at Gardsøy highlights the heritage of the fishermen-farmers, their day-to-day life, and the islanders’ unique thousand-year-old tradition as guardians of the migrating eider ducks that nest in the archipelago.

Camping and cabins

Offersøy Camping is beautifully situated by the shore along the Coastal Highway, Fv17. Here you can also rent a fishing boat, and you have access to a hut where you can clean your catch. Offersøy Camping is also the ideal base for kayaking or cycling, embarking on mountain hikes into the Seven Sisters range – or just enjoying the tranquillity of the idyllic campsite.

In addition, there are also 30 spots for caravans or campers, with electrical hook-up, as well as nice spots to pitch a tent – all with an excellent view of the sea.
