Helgeland is perfect for winter adventures! Snow-capped peaks that tower over the Helgeland coast, and the unspoiled expanses of the inland mountain wilderness, make Helgeland ideal for your winter holiday activities. Here are a few suggestions for things to enjoy when you get here.
Explore the summits
The vast wilderness between the coast and inland mountain massifs beckon you to adventure. Whether you prefer an accessible coastal foothill or a far more challenging peak to hike, in Helgeland you can find the mountains that suit you. We recommend leaving the planning to the experienced guides who know this region like the back of their hand. They know which peaks would provide the right amount of challenge for you and your friends, and the safe routes up those summits. You can concentrate on enjoying yourself both during, before and after the adventure.
Dog-sleighing in the mountain wilderness
There might be quite a commotion and noise while the eager dogs are waiting, but at the signal they fall silent. Soon they are rushing your sleigh through the snow-covered countryside, and the only sound is the sleigh runners and the paws against the snow below. Now there is only you, your dog team and the wilderness.
Marvel at the Northern Lights
Words such as magical and fantastic are no exaggeration when you try to describe the dance of the Northern Lights! But truth be told, words can hardly capture this amazing phenomenon. The weather and other conditions have to be just right. When we believe you have a good chance to see the Northern Lights, we’ll let you know on Instagram and Facebook.
