We’ve made your Seven Sisters hike easier by offering a convenient bus service from the Sandnessjøen town centre directly to the trailheads, and back again. Parking is rather limited in the small parking lots at the Seven Sisters’ trailheads. By taking the direct shuttle bus you avoid this problem completely, so you can concentrate fully on your hike. You can also join one of our expert guides for guided summit hikes to the Seven Sisters (De syv søstre).

Transport to the Seven Sisters mountains

Our shuttle bus departs several times a day from Hotel Scandic Syv Søstre in Sandnessjøen, and from the caravan parking lot by the town’s guest harbour. You can choose the departure that suits you best and book a seat on the bus that leaves the hotel in the morning at 8, 9 or 10 am, or in the afternoon at 1:30, 3:30 or 5:30 pm. The bus drives via the caravan park and takes you to the trailhead at the foot of one of the Seven Sisters. The bus ride takes about 30 minutes.

The return bus from the Seven Sisters to Sandnessjøen leaves shortly after arrival. To secure your bus seat, we recommended that you book your ticket a bit in advance of your mountain hike.

The shuttle bus runs Monday through Saturday, from Monday 21 May until Tuesday 29 August. You can book the departure and return time of your choice.

Guided summit hike on one or several of the Seven Sisters

Each guided hike will be adapted to the wishes and natural pace of the group. You decided whether you want to hike at a brisk pace and ascend several peaks, or to hike just one of the summits at a relaxed pace. We meet up at the Hotel Scandic Syv Søstre in Sandnessjøen at 8 am, and the excursion takes about 7 hours.

Our guided mountain hikes must be booked several days in advance. These guided hikes are offered every Wednesday and Friday, from Wednesday 30 June and through the end of July.

Your guide will decide which peaks of the Seven Sisters we hike, depending on the weather, conditions in the mountains, and the group. On each hike there is a max. limit of 8 people. All of the guides are local experts who know these majestic mountains like the back of their hand. They are eager to share this magnificent mountain wilderness with you, and willingly share their knowledge and good stories.

Guided tour up the mountain range The Seven Sisters must be booked a couple of days in advance, while the shuttle bus must be booked no later than the day before departure. If there are too few registered, the trips are canceled and if it is full, there is of course no more capacity when you could have imagined the trip.

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