Shared adventures and time together are the best parts of a holiday. When you share experiences, you create unforgettable memories and forge stronger relationships. Are you going on a holiday with the love of your life? A holiday for the whole family? Or is it a trip with friends? Below are suggestions for things to do, highlights to see, attractions to visit and places to dine. In short, magical moments worth sharing.

For the whole family

Bring your family to Helgeland and let everyone experience Northern Norway at its best! Let this be a summer of shared adventures and mastering new challenges. This summer, maybe your kids will learn to row, fish their own dinner (and clean the catch), and tie proper sailor’s knots to securely moor the boat in the guest harbour? Maybe the youngest one will learn to swim? Maybe this will be the summer when the whole family climbed majestic mountains, traversed glaciers and crossed (parts of) oceans? In Helgeland, everyone young and old can find challenges and great adventures that suit them.

A voyage with your partner

It’s a truly magical experience to see the Helgeland coast bathed in the glow of the midnight sun – and even more so when you’re sharing that moment with the love of your life.

Sit on the edge of the quay, listen to the seabirds – the mood of midsummer is romantic and seems timeless and unending. Find a sheltered cove with a beach you can have all to yourself. Find a series of wonderful overnight stays: a charming inn, a traditional farm, and a restored rorbu fisherman’s cabin on an island. How about taking a kayaking course together? Let that open the door to shared new adventures! Or how about just enjoying these tranquil days, and dining on the freshest imaginable seafood wonderfully prepared, while savouring the view of the magnificent Helgeland coast as your main course?

A friendly adventure

There is something special about sharing great outdoor adventures with your best friends, whether two or three or a larger group. Your holiday with friends can consist of “island hopping” and exploring a series of scenic islands at just the right pace. Our guides and instructors are ready to help you face new challenges – it’s incredibly satisfying when you master new skills. How about kayaking the waves of the open ocean, or the adrenaline rush of white-water river rafting? In Helgeland you will find this and so much more!

Perhaps you prefer climbing a mountain by ascending the Via Ferrata? Or just reaching the top by taking the convenient Sherpa-built stone stairs. You fall silent as you and your friend peer at the breathtaking panorama from the summit of a legendary mountain. At the end of the day, enjoy good conversation and laughter as you share a great meal. The stories of the day’s memorable moments will be told for many years to come.
