The Helgeland coast
A highlight reel of natural and cultural treasures along the north Norwegian coastline
Stretching across the Arctic Circle from Rørvik up to Ørnes, the Helgeland coast is often singled out as one of the most enjoyable parts of a Hurtigruten voyage. En route, we call in at Brønnøysund, Sandnessjøen and Nesna, and offer a number of excursions that bring you closer to the region’s people, nature and culture.
Whether your journey takes place during the endless summer days or in winter darkness with the Northern Lights, you will never forget your trip along this section of coast, which was once the home of Norway’s famous 17th-century poet-priest, Petter Dass.
