Helgeland Coast

Visit Norway's natural wonders and coastline.

With more than 14,000 islands, there is plenty to explore in this region.  On the Helgeland Coast you will find the UNESCO Museum on the Vega Islands, The Seven Sisters, Torghatten, Svartisen and the Saltstraumen (maelstrom). It is one of Norway’s most undersold destinations.

The Seven Sisters north of Alstahaug and Torghatten south of Brønnøysund are well known natural attractions along this stretch of road. The Seven Sisters are a range of seven mountains, all more than 1,000 metres above sea level.

Climb up to the 160-metre-long hole through the Torghatten Mountain was created by the ice age. The view is over the islands, incredible with the midnight sun.

The archipelago reflects the way fishermen and farmers have, over the past 1,500 years, maintained a sustainable living. The island of Vega and its surrounding islands were awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2004.
