Helgeland should be experienced as a seaborne adventure! Take a boat trip, sign up for a RIB sea-rafting adventure, or join an experienced skipper on a sailboat. When wind fills your sails and sends your boat racing across the waves – there is no feeling like it. Hear how the hull ploughs the waves as you admire the shifting view of the myriad of island and islets along the Helgeland coast.
Since time immemorial, the sea has been our most important thoroughfare, our workplace, our pantry and our livelihood. And only when you yourself are sailing the sea can you ever get a taste of that. Numerous places along the coast offer RIB sea-rafting safaris. At other places you can sign up for a trip on a sailboat, and explore the islands where fishermen-farmers have defied storms and eked out a living. For a real taste of the fisherman’s life, you can go on a deep-sea fishing trip on board a traditional wooden fishing smack. These are still used by Helgeland fishermen who bring in impressive catches from these fish-rich waters.
