Velfjordferie is beautifully situated by the fjord, with great fishing spots and hiking trails nearby! The area lies just south of the Arctic Circle, which means you have daylight virtually round-the-clock, from mid-May to the end of July. Fishing is especially popular at “night”, when the wind dies down and the sea often is calm as a mirror.

Holiday accommodation – and fishing and hiking in the national park

Velfjord offers a multitude of possibilities for outdoor activities and nature experiences. The varied scenery will tempt you with many types of excursions and adventures, in winter as well as summer.

Velfjord’s great hiking terrain is just as ideal for families as for hikers looking for a serious challenge. Lomsdal-Visten National Park is just one of many options.

For hikers, we especially recommend a visit in September–October, to enjoy the fiery autumn colours and crystal-clear air.

With water on two sides, the Velfjordferie complex has been continually improved since it was restored and given its current form in 1993. There is a private marina, and 20 boats are available for hire.


The resort offers holiday apartments in its main building and annex, with units accommodating between two and nine persons. The beds are very comfortable and each guest has a personal closet. Every apartment has a large, well-equipped kitchen and a spacious bathroom, satellite TV and WiFi.
